Barcelona offer Griezmann to Juventus, reports in Italy

Word coming out of Italy states that conversations have begun about the possible transfer which could see Douglas Costa and Adrien Rabiot move to the Camp Nou.

Antoine Griezmann's situation in Barcelona is not going as well as he must have hoped back when he (finally) made ‘The Decision’ and one potential solution to this is reportedly already in discussion: a move to Serie A giants Juventus.

Griezmann to join Cristiano Ronaldo?

According to the Italian news outlet, Rai Sport, the Catalan club sees this transfer as a good way of aiding the rebuilding of a side that has invested significantly over recent years with little improvement seen on the field. Much of their success continues to flow through the genius of Lionel Messi.

Journalist Paolo Paganini reports that talks between the two clubs are already underway and Barça are open to losing 29-year-old Griezmann in exchange for money and the arrival of two Juve players, namely Douglas Costa and Adrien Rabiot.

The report contests that the good relationship forged between the two clubs was recently strengthened with the Pjanic-Arthur agreement - one that raised an eyebrow of accounting experts - and this gives further reason to believe the transfer of Griezmann to the Italian team is possible.

Although their are some Juve fans that would be licking their lips at the prospect of Griezmann linking up with Ronaldo next season (with some cynics potentially being given ammunition to debate the Cristiano-Messi team line once again) Paganini also referred to attempts to offload the Frenchman to PSG for Neymar and Inter for Lautaro.
