The possible transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo for him Atletico Madrid It could be more feasible than it seems. The rojiblanco team right now does not have the financial capacity to take over the services of the Portuguese for the course that is about to start, but everything could change in the last month of the market. And it is that Antoine Griezmann His continuity at the Metropolitano is not assured, which opens the door to the arrival of the Manchester United footballer.
The Portuguese is willing to be one of the protagonists of the summer. His intentions to leave Old Trafford are more than evident, since he wants to play in the next Champions League. Among the most likely options to do so is Atlético, although in recent hours they have also begun to negotiate with Sporting de Portugal.
His signing for the rojiblanco team would not be easy at all. To begin with, he has the refusal of a hobby that does not forget the decade in which they suffered as a player of the Real Madrid. However, his arrival would mean a leap in quality that was more than evident in order to fight for the titles. Something that Simeone knows, for which he has given his approval. But it is the economic issue that makes it difficult for Cristiano can play for rojiblanco next season.
Griezmann has the key
The Atlético It has a large wage bill, which makes the Portuguese record practically unaffordable. At least, if there are no more exits in Simeone’s squad. This is where the piece appears that could change everything, which is none other than Antoine Griezmann.
To the doubts about the continuity of Álvaro Morata y Saul Ñíguez, Griezmann’s are now added. That of the Frenchman is not a simple situation, since he still belongs to Barcelona although he will play another season on loan at Atlético, who are obliged to buy him for 40 million if this course disputes more than 40% of the matches. It is this operation that questions the rojiblanca directive and that could make them change their mind regarding the continuity of the Frenchman.
The Atlético is seriously considering giving up Griezmann. Something that would be possible as long as the Barça, with great economic needs, also agree. His departure would release salary mass in the rojiblanca squad and would make a hole for Cristiano. An exchange that would allow the rojiblancos to take, without a doubt, a leap in quality and that would allow them to dream, why not, of their first Champions League.
