Messi still did not decide his future

Since the Argentine sent the famous burofax to Barcelona last August and declared that he did not want to continue in Barcelona, ​​he did not rule out staying at the club in the last interview he gave. In any case, he expressed that he will decide what to do when this season concludes since his contract ends on June 30 of this year.


Antoine Griezmann: The star who signed Barcelona finally shows signs of life

A long time ago, the Barcelona fans sentenced Antoine Griezmann. The Frenchman came to the team still against the wishes of the team and His signing is the ultimate symbol of Josep María Bartomeu’s management, one of the most hated characters in the club’s history, but those fans forget something fundamental: Griezmann is a great player.

The Macon forward is an established footballer, He demonstrated his quality in Real Sociedad, Atlético de Madrid and of course, the French team with whom he was key piece to get his second world championship, but beyond the reasons, at Barcelona he hadn’t lived up to expectations… Until now.

Danish Martin Braithwaite unexpectedly stole Griezmann’s job and apparently that was what woke up the French, that and his new position in the field which is that of a natural “9”, center forward, where do you sit much more comfortable by not depending so much on his connection with Messi outside the area.

Two goals and one assist in a great game for Griezmann against Granada, but a fluency that he had not shown since he arrived at the Barça team. This is really good news for the Catalans, that already they had resigned themselves to having him as the most disastrous signing in their history… And there have been bad ones.

It seems that “The Little Prince” he is finally adapting to the characteristic community of Barcelona; if things continue to improve game by game for Griezmann, the team could have an unexpected good season finale, when it seemed rather lost.


Simeone, close to having Diego Costa’s replacement

Late 2020 Diego Costa terminated his contract and left the Atletico Madrid. However, from the Colchonero they moved fast and Argentine Diego Simeone will have a replacement for the forward. The chosen one was Moussa Dembele, French attacker from Olympique Lyon.

Ronald Koeman's praise for Lionel Messi:

Although the negotiation is not yet closed, the 24-year-old tip would reach a loan until the end of the season with a purchase option that will not be mandatory. The forward, who is currently injured with a broken arm, had been a key piece of the team in the previous season in which he contributed 16 goals in Ligue 1 and was the author of two goals against Manchester City in the match for the quarterfinals of the Champions League in which Lyon lost in the semifinals against Bayern Munich, which was crowned.

Anyway, his level has dropped a lot in recent times. This season he played 670 minutes in 16 league games, usually starting as a substitute, and only scored one goal. His performance has been poor, but at Atlético they trust that he can shine again.

Diego Simeone on the radar of Premier League teams, is he leaving Atlético Madrid?

This would be Dembelé’s third step out of his country. Before he wore the shirts of the Fulham and Celtic, a team in which he showed the level he knew how to have in the youth of the France selection, where he was a benchmark in all categories.

Since Costa’s departure became official, several names of forwards had sounded, such as Loren Morón, Edin Dzeko, Rául de Tomás, Maxi Gómez or Arkadiusz Milik. The other firmer option was William José, but in Rojiblanco they opted for the arrival of the French since he will arrive on loan.
