Operation Griezmann is becoming one of the biggest soap operas of a transfer window that’s not even opened yet. He must take a decision over his future and everything is pointing to him signing for Barca.
According to AS, a third offer of renewal from Atletico caused Griezmann to think about staying and a call from Leo Messi was needed to persuade him to come to Barcelona.
This, along with comments from Luis Suarez in recent weeks have given Barca extra hope of bringing in the Frenchman, and he seems far closer to joining the Catalans than signing on again at Atletico.
Lionel Messi wants Griezmann at Barca so he is surrounded by quality players.
