Why Barcelona could swap Antoine Griezmann plus cash for Sadio Mane

According to AS Sport, Barcelona are hoping to swap a player plus cash to sign Liverpool’s sensational attacker Sadio Mane. The Catalunya giants feel Mane and not Griezmann is better suited to playing in the wings due to his electrifying pace, good dribbling skills, fantastic linkup play and goals.

Mane is a world class winger who can offer Barcelona pace, power and a strong winning mentality which is why the club could offer Griezmann plus $40m to sign Mane. Barcelona are reportedly terrified of making the same mistake twice of signing a world class attacker for over $100m dollars only to loan them off the following season due to their inability to adjust to the team.


The club’s respective club managers just don’t know to restructure the team to fit attacking midfielders / second strikers like {Philippe Coutinho and Antoine Griezmann} along side Lionel Messi who now plays on the right wing and some times as a Number 10 or in-between the lines.

Respective managers keep playing (Coutinho and Griezmann) in the left wing in a 4-3-3 or 4-2-2 formation despite knowing they don’t have the pace to burn or the dribbling skills to beat defenders before crossing the ball or cutting in to shoot at goal.

To avoid another calamitous signing and a backlash from the fans and press, Barcelona are hoping to strike a deal with Liverpool that will see Sadio Mane move to Camp Nou and Antoine Griezmann move to Anfield. But, a deal like that will be complicated due to Liverpool’s financial strength and Mane’s commitment to Liverpool’s course.

Selling Mane to Barcelona will take a crazy offer not even Jurgen Klopp can refuse.
