Antoine Griezmann could be offered to Inter Milan by Barcelona in a move that could disappoint Arsenal and Manchester United.
According to a report from Calciomercato, Barca are considering offering the Frenchman in exchange for Lautaro Martinez. The Inter striker is wanted by officials at the Nou Camp this summer.
It is believed that the Catalan giants will be unable to meet Inter’s valuation or release clause of Martinez. Therefore, they could well offer Griezmann in exchange for the striker.
Griezmann only joined Barcelona in the summer. The Spanish giants paid a whopping £107m (Guardian) for the striker, who helped France to World Cup glory in 2018.
However, he’s only managed eight goals since moving to the Nou Camp. That, then, has led to talks of a potential move away from La Liga for the 28-year-old.
Both Arsenal and United have been linked (Mirror) with a move for Griezmann in the past few months.
Inter, though, could hold the trump card with Martinez. The Argentinian has rattled in 16 goals across all competitions this season.

It won’t be the first time the Gunners have felt disappointment when it comes to Griezmann. The club previously missed out in 2017 on the Frenchman.
Latest talks of a move to Arsenal would also be somewhat surprising. The Gunners won’t be able to afford around £100m to land the striker. Furthermore, they have little in the way of assets to offer Barcelona in exchange.
It looks like Griezmann will once again get away from Arsenal. Inter Milan, meanwhile, will be delighted if they can land a straight replacement for Martinez.
