Griezmann Willing To Take A Pay Cut To Stay At Barcelona

Griezmann is only interested in leaving if it means returning to Atletico Madrid, but he is willing to sit down and discuss a wage reduction that would allow him to continue at the Camp Nou, according to the latest update from Diario Sport. Moreover, Antoine Griezmann's future at Barcelona is still up in the air, with reports suggesting he could be moved this summer to clear space on the wage bill and help the club pay for Lionel Messi's new contract.

In addition, the 30-year-old is reportedly uninterested in moving to the Premier League but would welcome the opportunity to work with Diego Simeone at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium once more. However, Griezmann's preference, according to the update, is to stay in Barcelona, and he hasn't been allowed to go yet. Further, last week, he returned to training and played in a friendly victory over Girona on Saturday.

Additionally, Griezmann is expected to meet with the club to discuss his future, and the forward would have no qualms with sitting down and discussing a wage cut to aid the team's financial situation. Moreover, with the start of the new La Liga season less than three weeks away, some major decisions must be made, and they must be made soon. 

Also, to make the numbers equal up, it appears that Barca would have to decrease the salary of several other players as well.
