With the opening of the pass book getting closer and closer, the name dance begins to sound in the most powerful teams in Europe. The financial crisis that caused the coronavirus pandemic will be key in the next transfer market, forcing clubs to be cautious and intelligent with the operations they make to strengthen themselves.

Barcelona's one of those that needs to incorporate footballers, especially to finish forming a winning sports project in order to convince Lionel Messi to continue being the captain, and from Spain they revealed a movement that could become the most resonant transfer of the transfer period.

According to the Onze de Esport 3 program, Antoine Griezmann could return to Atlético of Madrid, who would part with Joao Félix as part of a star exchange operation.

As detailed in the television program, this operation could be beneficial for both clubs in terms of sports and economics. On a financial level, the two footballers were signed for a similar price, while Barça paid 126 million in 2019 to take over The Little Prince, Atlético paid 120 for the Portuguese to Benfica.

The intention of the culé leadership to reduce the salary mass is already more than known, something for which this barter would also serve them. Currently, Griezmann's file is at 20 million euros, while João Félix's is at 7 or 8.

It isn't the first time that Barcelona have starred in this type of operation. He recently made one with Valencia between goalkeepers Jasper Cillessen and Neto Murara, although the most resonant was the one he did with Juventus by exchanging Arthur for Miralm Pjanic.
