Tottenham contacted about Barcelona star – this would be a major statement
By Bruce Grove -

Antoine Griezmann has emerged as the latest player to be linked with a move to Tottenham this summer.

Fabio Paratici has had a busy summer transfer window since he started his role as the director of football at the club.

The former Juventus executive has helped Spurs become linked with a few high-profile targets in this window.

Griezmann is their latest reported target as Barcelona looks to offload the 2018 World Cup winner.

L’Equipe via Sport Witness claims Barca is keen to sell him and they have now shopped him around to clubs in Europe and one of them is Tottenham.

The Lilywhites will have to battle the likes of Juventus and Atletico Madrid before they can sign him.

He was close to a return to his former club recently when a swap deal that involved Saul Niguez was discussed.

However, that hasn’t come off and the report says they are back to square one now and looking for a new home for him.

Tottenham wants to return to the top four and adding a quality attacker like the Frenchman to their squad will help their bid to achieve that.

However, his salary might be bigger than that of Spurs’ highest earner and that could pose an issue for them.

Seems like a better option for City I’d say.

Of course as already mentioned his wages are not in Spurs stratosphere. Sometimes when the random rumor spinner lands on someone so ludicrous it’s time to just spin it again.

Oh, the irony of it all. In July 2014, Atletico Madrid triggered his £24 mill buy out clause from Real Sociedad. We had up low balled Sociedad and offered £15 mill for him as a replacement for Bale. He was later sold for over €100 mill to Barca. In the immortal words of Pete and Dud, “laugh, I nearly sha* myself”. Bruce, I am sure you are a well meaning fellow but you don’t half write some nonsense.

This is the sort of false transfer connection that usually gets trotted out about the time of the season renewals. Levy buy Griezmann and match his wages? Pull the other one.

Yep, he’ll be signing at the same time as Levy confirms the volte-face about Conte and he’s appointed as manager.

On what planet would anyone even imagine Levy would spring for Griezmann? F’ sake i want the 30 seconds back it took me to consider this transfer

Ageeed, not sure How Levy can see any value in this transfer? Sounds like paper talk to boost interest…. Ironically hed probably be a good fit at Chelsea

Until they restructure the finances within the game then this situation will continue, the game is killing itself.

I was saying lately some Spurs fans have become more spin doctors than the Master himself ie Levy I guess Coutinho and Pjanic are coming with him and may be Dembele as well only in Spurs you couldn’t make it up 😂😂

Excellent article on the Guardian website about Barcelona’s money troubles.

Astounding figures like Barcelona wage bill eats up 110% of their income.

If the Spanish La Liga kicked off tomorrow Barcelona would be barred from taking part because of all the financial rules they are breaking.
