In France: Grossman is close to Barca
Representatives of Barcelona have held talks with Antoine Griezmann`s managers and there is considerable convergence in the positions of both sides, says the French edition Le10Sport, adding that the agreement is very close. The striker is expected to leave Atletico Madrid at the latest after the season, but may request a transfer as early as January. Just a few months ago, the French national signed a new contract until 2022, with a 100 million euro ransom clause. However, according to the AS, the Catalans are not willing to raise so much money, so they will be able to negotiate with Atletico for a lower transfer fee, which may be an impossible task.
Some time ago it was hard to say that Grossman had also reached an agreement with Manchester United, but he himself denied even speaking to Jose Mourinho.
