Le PSG est un acteur majeur de l’actualité liée au football. Mais les clubs pouvant soumettre une offre convaincante au PSG pour son milieu néerlandais (31 ans) ne sont pas légions. En Premier League, la formation de José Mourinho n’est pas en grande forme à l’image de son classement décevant. In particular, he is tempted by the lure of the Premier League but he wants to remain respectful to Los Blancos and their president Florentino Perez until they agree a deal. En effet, Hugo Lloris s’est gravement blessé au coude en octobre dernier lors d’un match de Premier League. The French forward was also instrumental in the Rojiblancos’ run to the 2016 UEFA Champions League final and their 2018 victories in the UEFA Europa League and UEFA Super Cup – as well as France’s runners-up finish at UEFA EURO 2016 (where he was Player of the Tournament) and their 2018 FIFA World Cup triumph.
• Scored the decisive goal in a backs-to-the-wall display in Germany as Atlético defeated Bayern München on away goals to reach the 2016 UEFA Champions League final. In pleasant yet somewhat shocking fashion, the centre-forward now has 15 goals and ten assists this year alone for both club and country, meaning he currently has the sixth most goal contributions across the top five leagues. United had not only found Maguire a great dance partner, but also a more than capable stand-in who was about to spend his peak years at the club. Should United get things done here, it’d add to the memorable transfer window thus far. The Express highlight the breakdown in David de Gea’s prospective transfer six years ago that drove a wedge between the pair. Some didn’t believe he had the profile to replace the likes of Neymar, while others detested him for abandoning a transfer to Barça in the year before. The next campaign started out with the appointment of Ronald Koeman, a coach who had spoken several times about respecting players and playing them in their best positions.
Ironically, Le Petit Prince has enjoyed his best moments playing as a left-winger or left-forward in the Dutch coach’s setups. This season, Griezmann has scored and assisted in several important matches. Of his 33 goals as a Barça player, 19 have served to give the Catalans the lead in matches. Therefore, 26 of his 33 goals have been vital in deciding the outcome of matches. “It is true that what’s been said may generate doubts in the relationship with Leo, but I think he knows very well that I have a lot of respect for him. I have been putting up with many different comments, and now I’ve said enough is enough. Griezmann was named man of the match in the Moscow decider and was also awarded the Bronze Ball after being voted the third best player in the tournament. Not possessing the speed or dexterity to attempt take-ons from wider areas, the World Cup winner’s skill lay in his intelligent use of the half-spaces as a creative player while also wearing some of the best finishing boots in Europe. • He followed up at the 2018 World Cup by scoring four times, including in the final against Croatia, as France lifted the trophy for the second time.
The Frenchman is world-class without question and has competed in the biggest stages in the world and won the biggest accolade in world football. Antoine Griezmann has sincerely managed to revive his Barcelona career, consistently performing both with direct contributions as well for the team; he is deservedly starting to win favour with the fanbase. Griezmann managed to start his Barcelona career with a few bright displays, such as his brace against Real Betis in August 2019. The Frenchman seemed to slot in perfectly into the Blaugranas’ possession-based system, displaying neat passing and great finishing. Despite his relatively modest height, he is a huge basketball fan and often plays in his spare time. His role of the second striker did not exist in Barça, a team that would line up in a 4-3-3 throughout the 19/20 season. It seemed that the French striker would finally enjoy the tutelage of a coach who would respect his position in the team.
