While Barça has indeed tried his luck for Joao Felix and Edinson Cavani, Jorge Mendes puts his two cents in by attempting a huge exchange!
After the almost official sales of Emerson and Ilaix Moriba for a total amount of 50 million euros, Barça has found a little leeway to invest and has set a priority: the arrival of a number 9. These last hours, two tracks emerged in an attempt to strengthen: Joao Felix and Edinson Cavani.
Problem, neither of the two files dug by Barça seems to be able to really advance. According to Sport, Atlético Madrid would have clearly said no to a departure of Joao Felix. As for Edinson Cavani, several sources are unanimous. The Uruguayan striker does not want to leave the Mancunian club, and the Red Devils are very clear on the desire to keep their striker for the coming season. But one man seems to be trying to shake things up dramatically. Several media, including TuttoMercato or ESport3, assure that Jorge Mendes is maneuvering to try to negotiate a huge exchange between Joao Felix and Antoine Griezmann!
The Portuguese super agent could count according to these same sources on the approval of the two players, but also of Diego Simeone who would be delighted to find the French striker. While his relations with Barça president Joan Laporta are excellent, Jorge Mendes will nevertheless have to resolve two problems. The first being the huge difference in salary between the two players. The second being the big doubts of the president of Atlético Madrid on the relevance of the exchange.
Barça is absolutely looking for a striker by the end of the Mercato and has multiplied the tracks. Problem, no file is really resolved. Except that a certain Jorge Mendes has obviously chosen to do everything to unblock things.
Antoine Griezmann had a particularly complicated match last night on the field of Athletic Bilbao (1-1).
