According to French media outlet 'La Parisien', Antoine Griezmann has told his representatives that he's "fuming" at the talk of a possible transfer swap between himself and Neymar which would see PSG sign the Atletico forward and Neymar rejoin Barça.

It's believed that FC Barcelona, who have reportedly agreed terms with Griezmann over a transfer on the 1st July, could use the forward as part of their plan to land Neymar from PSG. It's rumoured they could sign Griezmann then immediately offer him to the French club.

This is something Griezmann doesn't even want to consider. He refuses to be used as a pawn in Barça's battle to land Neymar. The Atleti man would prefer to keep his options open should Barça look elsewhere and wouldn't want to help a side that didn't want to keep him.

The same newspaper says that a potential problem with Griezmann going to PSG is his frosty relationship with Kylian Mbappe.
