Barcelona striker Luis Suarez has dropped a huge hint that Antoine Griezmann is joining him this summer after a deal was agreed with Atlético Madrid.
The Frenchman was expected to move on last summer, with Manchester United heavily linked, but he stayed because Atleti were in the midst of a transfer ban at the time,
Now that has passed, and with the buyout clause in his contact set to halve to €100million, he is on the market again, and Suarez has suggested the deal is already agreed to take him to Barcelona.
He told Radio Rincon: “It makes the club proud to bring players of this quality like Antoine, like [Ousmane] Dembele and [Philippe] Coutinho came.
“He’s a player who brings a huge amount, he has a lot of years playing at the highest level, always fighting. He rules up front for Atletico and that is fundamental.
“He is not coming to take the place of anyone, but with the ambition of winning important things.
“He will be welcomed.”
