Will Barcelona be your next destination?
Although the departure of Griezmann was really emotional, the sports world is speculating about his next destination, and some clues would place him in Barcelona. First, some suggestions suggested that the next French club would be Paris Saint-Germain, but this hypothesis was quickly ruled out by Paris United. According to Sport Es, this French portal reported that there were some contacts with the nearby circle with Griezmann, but this issue did not go to the form and even claimed that it would be an ex-Madrid maneuver to arrive with a higher price to the Barcelona.
Second, the prestigious French sports newspaper RTL affirmed with a vehemence that the transfer of the French player to Barcelona is an immediate decision and that the only thing that would be missing would be the trip of his legal representative to Barcelona for the signature of all the required documents.

Third, the Spanish newspaper AS announced that the French players Samuel Umtiti and Ousmane Dembéle had clarified to the Blaugrana players that the only option that Antoine Griezmann has in mind is Barcelona and that his departure from Madrid puts him one step closer to join the Barcelonés club.
Fourth, this same Spanish newspaper revealed that a Spanish journalist asked Simeone that if the economic incentive did not play against Atlético de Madrid, because they now have the arm to retain players, why do the players decide to leave? The question that was answered by the Uruguayan saying that there are bigger clubs with more history like Barcelona. For these four reasons, it seems that the French forward already has a new club in which to play, Barcelona.
What happened to the Lacazette option?
In the first days of April, Barcelona "announced" the transfer of the player Alexander Lacazette of Arsenal to Barcelona, or that was what the press and fans blaugranas thought. The explanation of this misunderstanding seems surprising, according to the newspaper Depor, on the official website of the Football Club Barcelona was shown, a few days ago, the photo of the French striker (Lacazette) with all his data and statistics suggesting that his entry to the aforementioned club was a fact, but the Barcelona leaders came quickly to the step and clarified that everything was a confusion.
As stated by that same newspaper, the Blaugrana technicians have information on each player that will be or was a rival of the Spanish club, for this reason, Lacazette's report was published erroneously on the official website; In addition, they added that the option of having the services of the French player is quite distant.
