Philippe Coutinho ready to return to Liverpool FC

Philippe Coutinho ready to return to Liverpool FC

Griezmann will strengthen an attack led by Lionel Messi and Luis Suárez after agreeing to sign a five-year contract, Barcelona announced. "I have never felt anything like that", he said, according to Sport. The 2017 clash is still regarded as one of the finest in Champions League history.

The chances of him rejoining the Catalan giants are further complicated by Antoine Griezmann's arrival from Atletico Madrid for 120 million euros. Barca remain interested in bringing Neymar back to Spain, although the task became more hard after they splashed out £108million on Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann. It's a new challenge, with new targets.

"Finally, our paths cross".

"Atletico de Madrid considers that the deposited amount is insufficient to cover his buyout clause, since it is obvious that the agreement between the player and FC Barcelona was closed before the clause was reduced from €200 million to €120 million".

"Atletico Madrid believes that the termination of the contract took place before the end of last season", the club said, adding Griezmann had made it clear in his actions and words.

Antoine Griezmann insists he has no regrets about snubbing an offer from Barcelona last summer via a documentary after being presented at Camp Nou on Sunday.

Coutinho has struggled to live up to his billing as Barcelona's most expensive player since joining the club in January past year, from Liverpool. Calciomercato are reporting that Barcelona are willing to let the Brazilian leave the club on a two-year loan deal with an option to buy him for £88 million.

However, the chances of him returning to Barcelona, where he previously starred for four years, can not have been helped by the completion of Antoine Griezmann's transfer to the Camp Nou from Atletico Madrid.

Griezmann scored 133 goals in 256 games at Atletico.

As well as his World Cup success with France, he is also a Champions League and European Championship runner-up after Atletico and France fell at the final hurdle in those respective competitions in 2016.

On Friday Atletico also unveiled Felix's former Benfica teammate Ivan Saponjic with the 20-year-old Serbian forward having signed a three-year deal with the Spanish club.
