Barcelona have sought another forward transfer following the deal

FC Barcelona are eager to find a way to open the door for Antonin Griezmann this summer, and are heading to Serie E giants Juventus FC for another possible swap deal. Talks with Atletico Madrid took place earlier in the week, shortly after the report surfaced.

As the French forward was preparing to return to Atletico Madrid, Saul Nguyen left for Camp Nou. However, after Barcelona refused to replace the straight player, the two Liga giants could not reach a compromise. They want extra fees for either the avoidance man, or the maximum number of players. Atletico, on the other hand, were unwilling to shoulder the full amount of Griezmann’s salary, and were hoping to share the burden with Barcelona.
