    We don't have time to wait until the end of the window, and it will just give us even less leverage than we have right now.
    That does not mean we should accept any shitty deal for him whatsoever.

    Reduce his wage already then, and wait for offers later in the window

    "Bar?a END negotiations to advance the Sa?l-Griezmann exchange."

    Bold move by Laporta, showing who is the boss here: Atleti wanted to play it smart and robb us with the help of the greasy Frenchie.

    No more Bartos, no more Barca being the clown in town, no more playing with us

    Ballsy move, but we were getting the short end of the stick with that straight swap deal + strengthening a direct rival by a lot.

    Atletico fucked up. They should have done the 15m+ Saul combo. Still a good deal for them. And very much according to the transfer value of these players. We would've ended up with Saul + 30m give or take considering Saul's salary would have been lower than Griezmann's by a good margin.

    That's pretty fair. If Saul is worth 40, Griezmann is 70. Or in a more normal market, Saul is 30, Griezy is 55 or so.

    They wanted us to pay some of Griezmann's salary So very happy the deal is off for now. Could not believe that we were going to strengthen a rival and yet end up with a loss.

    Better just loan Griezmann for a year with obligation to buy next summer or in 2 years. This way we erase his salary from our books and be sure to collect some cash in the end. Also, might help interested clubs to get him.

    Some talk about Liverpool possibly offering a Henderson - Saul swap as their contract extension talks with him aren't progressing.

    Well at the end of the day they can still sell Saul while we may end up being stuck with Griezmanns ridiculous salary so no suprise they didn't offer us a good deal.

    He started in both games and gave an assist in the first one. Why would he want to leave now though

    I say we should still propose the deal - Griez is waste of space & resources

    Chelsea looking for squad depth. He will be 4th in the pecking order behind Kante-Jorginho-Kovasic

    Other than Chelsea's 3-4-3 requires specific positional and passing work from the 2 CMs that Saul can provide
    nothing like the physical md that Barca is looking for

    I mean, Isco did for RM too

    I for one wonder why Chelsea would want him. Not gonna be any different for him over there either
    Some are boring, some are not.
