Reason why Bartomeu signed Griezmann reveals

A reporter with RAC1, Ernest Folch, claims former Barcelona president Josep Bartomeu signed Antoine Griezmann in a bid to reduce the influence of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez at Barcelona.

It was generally believed that Griezmann was signed for sporting reasons and as a suitable replacement for Neymar who had left for PSG.

Griezmann struggled to sparkle at Camp Nou as he remained in Messi's shadow. However, Messi's departure also coincided with Griezmann's as the Frenchman returned to Atletico Madrid this summer.

The Bartomeu board spent €120m to sign Griezmann from Atleti in 2019. He also became Barca's second-highest earner, bagging upwards of €30m per year.
