Griezmann and Dembele potential swap deal?February 20, 2018
According to reports, Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann could be in line for a move to Barcelona for £88.8m with current Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele, potentially going in the other direction on loan.
The deal would surely be a good move for both sides if it were to go through, as Barcelona would be getting one of the most dangerous forwards in Europe in Griezmann and in return, Atletico Madrid would be receiving a mouth-watering amount of money and an extremely talented young player coming in to replace him.
The deal would also provide Dembele with the opportunity to get a run of games in the Spanish top flight, and overcome the injury problems which have made it difficult for him to secure a regular place in the starting eleven at the Camp Nou so far this season.
In addition, he is a player who would suit Atletico Madrid’s style of play, as they like to sit with men behind the ball and break quickly on the opposition after they win it back. However, whether Barcelona would be willing to loan him out remains to be seen.
One thing is for certain though, if he is able to get back to full fitness and rediscover the form he showed at Borussia Dortmund, he would be an asset for either team.
