Guardiola rules Manchester City out of Griezmann race
Guardiola has assured F.C Barcelona fans that Man City will not try to sign Griezmann this summer.
The Frenchman has been linked with a move to Barcelona after announcing that he will be leaving Atletico Madrid toward the finish of this season.
« All the reporters from Barcelona, don’t worry, » Guardiola answered when asked about Griezmann on Friday. « We can’t bear the cost of him. City aren’t going to get him. »
Barcelona are among several top European clubs looking to activate Antoine Griezmann’s lowered 120 million euro release clause, but Paris Saint-Germain likewise aren’t one of them.
« Griezmann can play in any team in the world, but signing him isn’t a realistic responsibility for us, » said PSG boss Thomas Tuchel.
« We have other priorities, we have to start by reinforcing the resistance. »
Griezmann’s agent will travel to meet Barcelona at their Ciudad Condal base in the coming days to talk about any potential move.
