Barcelona have seemingly moved into pole position for Antoine Griezmann, with club president Josep Maria Bartomeu recently meeting the French star’s parents, as he looks to piece together a summer deal.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Bartomeu ate with the Atletico star’s parents and, crucially, his sister, who is currently looking after the agent-less forward’s professional affairs.
Griezmann, 26, was a major target for Manchester United last summer, before he decided to remain with Atletico.
He was subsequently handed a new big-money deal with a €100million buyout clause.
That figure is well within Barca’s reach and it appears that Griezmann is their choice as they look to add another striker to their attack.
