Antoine Griezmann will join Barcelona this summer, say Le Parisien. The French publication says Eric Abidal has convinced the Atletico Madrid striker to lower his salary to join the Blaugrana.
After the fiasco at Anfield, Barca are looking to reinforce their squad. They have already signed Frenkie de Jong from Ajax, there are talks over Matthijs de Ligt, and Barcelona want Griezmann to bolster the attack.
The publication says that Abidal didn't break contact with Griezmann's people after the player didn't join last summer, and that he wants to come to Barcelona in order to win more trophies. They think it's possible Abidal already has reached a dela with Griezmann.
His release clause will be 100m euros from the 1st of July (falling from 120m), and he would sign a four or five year deal.
Barca's defeat by Liverpool demands big changes at the club and Griezmann's arrival would be an attractive big name signing.
