REPORT: Spanish giant still waiting for Chelsea to submit £102m bid for player after club decision
According to Spanish media outlet Marca, Spanish giant side Barcelona are yet to receive a bid for France international Antoine Griezmann amid interest from Chelsea.
Griezmann has been linked with a move to Chelsea this summer as Barcelona look to get the striker off their inflated wage bill.
“Footballers agents and representatives are not stupid and they know that Barcelona are in a desperate and critical situation if they want to renew Messi’s contract so they know all they need to do is wait,” said the Marca report.
“There’s over a month to go and the club’s position is going to get weakened as they acknowledge the reality: either they sell player’s below their market value or they do not keep Messi.”
Griezmann joined Barcelona from Atletico Madrid for £102million in 2019 and has a contract until 2024.
