Faced with the need to release the salary mass to complete the renewal of Lionel Messi, the French striker is on the starting ramp and would not be disappointed to wear the shirt of the club with the one that was best in his career.

However, before leaving the Camp Nou, the international with France wants to collect every last cent that they owe him in the Catalan institution. According to ‘El Chiringuito’, Griezmann has asked Barcelona to pay him all the money he stopped earning when the club applied a salary reduction to the workforce at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. At that time, the club desperately sought to save a few million euros in salaries.

The former Atlético de Madrid striker agreed that all the money that Barcelona would deduct from him be paid within a period of six years. However, the pact was only valid with Griezmann as a footballer of the Catalan club. In the event of a transfer, the picture would be radically different.
