    Dembele was rocking Bundesliga and CL in his season at Dortmund. When I saw him at that time, I thought he might be winning the Ball d'Or sooner or later (actually perfect fit when Messi and Ronaldo retire eventually). That he has a mindset of a half boiled potato with sauce Bernaise wasn't really imaginable.

    Coutinho was also a key player at Liverpool. Him + Mane & Firmino was Jogo Bonito at times so I guess the circumstances of his club change are weighting way heavier than he might have imagined.

    Both shows that at this level of football it's way more than only being extremly talented. The mightset must be right which I don't see currently at neither of them.

    I'd say the Coutinho failure is more that they are playing him out of position more so than mindset

    I could see us trying to sell/desperately give one of Sanchez, Lukaku or Martial to Atleti to try and sweeten a deal for Griezmann

    Knowing our luck Griezmann will suddenly forget how to play football.

    It's worth mentioning that Godin is his best friend and that Gimenez is the third member of their gang, the former leaving probably played a role in his decision to leave Atletico himself. Now, it wouldn't be a bad idea to go after Gimenez.

    Griezmann loves the attention.

    Mint player, but he seems to be thick as thick gets

    I hope he ends up being another big money flop for Barca.

    He’s the opposite of system dependent. He performs in a system that is adverse to his attacking abilities.

    I wonder how Barca fans are taking this news? I wouldn't want him after that silly decision crap video.
    Too much of an attention seeker.

    As long as his father ain’t, we might still sign him.

    I'm wondering how both fans take it, this time and last.

    Is it just mildly irritating in Spain what Griezmann does or is he seen as quite the showman and it's all good? I don't seem to hear about much reaction from Atletico fans.

    Maybe we can't get him so Paul feels better and frees him so he can play his game and shine?

    Would be fun to have Pogs, J feckingEndMyLife Lingz and Griezmann at United, at least we'd win the social media war.

    I dislike this guy as much as Hazard. Both just get on my nerves in the transfer market. Atleast he has his hair back. Still a cnut.

    This guy is so deep in his own ass that it is unbelievable. At the same time, exactly the sort of signing that Ed would have a wank about. Griezmann, Pogba and Jesse together would make some atmosphere in dressing room.

    Griezmann was preparing another documentary to announce that he was leaving Atlético Madrid. The club found out and told him to stop making documentaries and publish the video we all saw yesterday. [cadena ser]

    Who gives a feck if he’s cringey, the only reason I’m in two minds about him is because I’m scarred from Sanchez complete feck up.

    As others have said he’s perfect for the system Ole’s used, he’s experienced, has flair, scores goals and works hard for the team. We’d be lucky to have him.
    130 m€ is probably more than we can afford to spend on any one player right now considering our squad resembling a swiss cheese at the moment.

    Seriously have to wonder where he is going. You wouldn’t think he’d agitate this without a firm offer from a club and Barca seem the most interested but how on earth can they afford him? Supposedly they had to take out 140mil euro loan last year to help pay their wage bill. Now they’ve signed DeJong, seem to be in for DeLigt who I’d imagine will be north of 60mil and I’d imagine Griezmann wouldn’t come for anything less than 250-300k a week. Probably more.

    They surely have to sell.

    Have in a way a fear that Ed is plotting for this one and will swoop in and then ignore other more pressing areas in the team.
