Reports claim PSG will move for Griezmann in the event that Neymar finally leaves the club. The Atletico Madrid forward is one of the favourites to win the Ballon d'Or this season, something which would add to the value of any future transfer. 

It's claimed coach Thomas Tuchel is in favour of paying what is a reported 150 million release clause in Griezmann's contract. To do so, PSG would accept the sale of Neymar, but not for less than 200 million. 

The Brazilian has been linked with Barça and Real Madrid this week. A lot of top teams would be interest if he was available. His exit from Paris would pay for Griezmann's return to France. 

Griezmann's arrival would also bolster PSG's French contingent, adding to Kylian Mbappe. Atletico managed to keep hold of Griezmann last summer when he had the chance to move to Barcelona.
