Barcelona Fc is looking forward to swapping Antonie Griezmann with Neymar Jr from Paris Saint-Germain. The Frenchman was signed into the club earlier late last year as a potential replacement for Neymar Jr who was sold out to French giant club Paris Saint-Germain which made him the most expensive player on earth.
It seems the Catalonia club is not too pleased with the performance of the new Frenchman as the void left behind by the Brazilian star is still left unfilled in the club. Reasonably, Barcelona is hoping to swap Antoine Griezmann for Neymar Jr when the transfer window opens in summer.
Neymar a potential replacement for Lionel Messi
It appears Barcelona is looking for a potential replacement for the club’s talisman, Lionel Messi who is currently close to his retirement year. Messi has been the backbone behind Barcelona’s successful seasons, his impact on the team can not be overemphasized.
Reasonably, many football analysts stated that any match against Barcelona is a match against Lionel Messi, as a matter of fact, he plays so well for his club as much he does for his countryside, Argentina. If Messi should retire or get weak due to age factor, Barcelona might suffer the ugliest blow of it. In essence, they need a player that the team can rely upon whereas most of the players in the club are not worth the task ahead.
The Catalonia club will do everything to get Neymar Jr back to the team. However, the interest of Real Madrid in the Brazilian player might make it a little difficult for Barcelona to get him back. Speculations have stated that Real Madrid is interested in signing the Brazilian star as a perfect replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo who left the club in 2018 after lifting the Champions League Cup.
