yeah I don't get this too much, the team looks so lopsided, no balance

who in their right mind will be helping Barca recoup on Dembele? Bayern should be in for him but I really feel like they won't get half of what they paid for him

To tell you how lopsided that line up could potentially be, Barcelona actually played a similar line up yesterday (Suarez with Dembele, Coutinho and Ini in advanced positions with Rakitic and Busquets in the CM roles). Levante had a fun time by passing their midfield any chance they got.

Wouldn't mind Suarez going, he's on decline and anyway he's not that great if he doesn't have a Neymar next to him

25 goals in 30+ appearances in La Liga for Suarez is considered declining now?

Higher expectation when you lose 1 game all season Doc, wouldn't expect a lowly 3rd place team to possibly understand.

Obviously. I mean, our CF has 5 goals in La Liga. Emmanuel Boateng, hattrick hero vs Barcelona has 6 goals and would be an immediate upgrade. Suarez's 25 is pretty much God like in my eyes.

There are different levels of decline, it's not a Benzema-type decline but still a decline nonetheless.

What I'm saying is that it's better to sell him now that we can still get some good money for the guy. He'll be 32 mid next season, it's only downhill from now.

Serie A would be a good fit for Suarez and the only way Barca would get decent money

can see him at Milan being fed by Calhanoglu and Suso ufff

Im actually really excited and happy to get Grizemann if its true Very Happy More exciting than Coutinho or Dembele since for me Grizemann is proven and mature, has the class and cutting edge up front and his all round play is so good, we can only benefit.

In terms of what it means for the other players I still think Suarez and even Messi is aging, they would need rotation, and atm we only have Paco up front capable for that. I also think we would eventually wanna go back to our traditional formation of 4-3-3 more or less rather than 4-4-2 which is just not Barcas style at all.

Anyway to compete as the very best we need a player like Grizemann. Oh and this will have weakened a direct rival significantly, good move Razz

Suarez will be sold for sure. Milan & Inter will probably try to sign him or even Napoli of they sell to generate the money.
Inter can sell Icardi while Milan badly needs a high profile striker.They might sell A.Silva and Bonaventura (to us lol) and go for Suarez.

Dont see how we could sell Dembele or Suarez. We dont need the money, Dembele's huge potential alone means we need to keep him, Suarez still has it and is just aging more thats all.

Only at Barca can a guy who scores 25+goals every season be on the shopping window. If he was sane he'd be considered the best striker around

He's still elite for sure. Wouldn't like to see a PL side sign him though at 31.

But for Serie A? You're getting a good 4 years out of him. Milan should be all over that if they can pay his wages.. there are no realistic alternatives if you want a top striker and they need that. I don't see him leaving anyway. Will stay at Barca.

Griezmann scored 19 in a defensive team that got 56 goals altogether.

Suarez got 25 goals in a team that scored 98 altogether.

Less to do with needing the money and more to do with squad management. Suarez is on huge wages, Griezmann would also be on huge wages and both have that seniority that demands they need to be played particularly Suarez. The odd man out is Dembele who is already on the bench so there is that.

It's an exciting signing, no lie, great player that Griezmann but it doesn't actually solve much.

Griezmann is Atletico's talisman. At Barca he would be another piece, like Suarez is. Aka Messi's waterboy. Garuantee his numbers at the end of the season won't be great.

Dembele HAS to be sold..but who signs him? Pool? don't see it unless Salah is sold

Bayern? sure

but Barca are going to want to recoup, how much do you realistically think he will go for? based on his performances at Barca, 50m would be pushing it.

I really feel like the Griezmann signing is just ridiculous and won't happen. It can't. It's too stupid.

Another reason why I really don't get this transfer bar the vanity behind it is that Griezmann plays best with another striker with him. Particularly one who can play with his back to goal, you know, like Diego Costa. I am sure Suarez can do that but Barca fans (not just Linetty surprisingly) want him sold so who is gonna be Griezmann's strike partner? Messi? Lol. It was no coincidence that Antoine's numbers went up after Costa arrived.

Seriously, the odd man out in any scenario is Dembele.
