Inter Milan, by Antonio Conte, has become an alternative to Juventus, with the permission of Lazio. Think about continuing to grow, with Griezmann as the star?
Antoine Griezmann signed for FC Barcelona last summer on payment of the 120 million of its clause. He was called to be the third member of the trident, along with Messi and Luis Suarez. He’s starring, but his adaptation isn’t being easy.
Barca are now looking to bolster their line of attack with a new striker. Another profile, though. He wants a ‘9’ to accompany Suarez in what could be his last year as a Azulgrana. And one of the names on the list of candidates is Lautaro Martínez, of Inter Milan.
With Messi himself betting on Lautaro. “It’s spectacular, it has stunning conditions. He looked like he was going to be a great player. Now it exploded and it’s showing it. It is very strong, has a very good one-on-one, has a lot of goal, in the area you fight with anyone, hold on, turn, you search for it alone. It’s got a lot of quality. It’s very complete.”
In recent days, information has emerged in Italy that Barca and Inter are trading on the basis of an exit price of 150 million. And even the possibility of including players in the operation has been leaked. With griezmann’s name among the candidates.
The Italian club wants to end the tyranny of Juventus in Serie A. And to do so, he intends to strengthen the team. And he has a secret weapon to try to convince Griezmann. He has in his squad a footballer who is much more than a simple friend for the Frenchman: Diego Godín, notes Calciomercato.
Godin and Griezmann shared costumes for five years, forging a great friendship. In fact, the Uruguayan was key to the el Principito remain at Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2018, when he put on the show ‘La Decisión’. The Frenchman recorded a documentary by Piqué to announce that he was still reddish, but 12 months later he left Madrid. He is also godfather to Mia, daughter of the French attacker.
This link could be used by Marotta as a letter to convince the ‘little devil’ to move to Milan. An unlikely operation, but not impossible.
