BARCELONA, NETRALNEWS.COM - Barcelona's new striker Antoine Griezmann has yet to get a back number at his new club. However, Barca is reportedly willing to give the number 7 shirt, the favorite of the French striker, even though the number is already used by Philippe Coutinho.

The France international striker was recruited from Atletico Madrid after his buy-out clause of 120 million euros was paid on Friday (07/12/2019). In Barcelona, ​​Griezmann agreed to be contracted for five years.

"When I was little, my father said that the opportunity didn't only come once," Griezmann said after his transfer to Barca was confirmed.

"Now is the time to accept the challenge in a new place. In the end we can be together," he continued.

For information, the number 7 has always been worn by the Griezmann since he worked in the Spanish League with Real Sociedad, Atletico Madrid, even in the French national team. Coupled with his doubtful future, Coutinho is reported to have no other choice.

Barcelona may still do another megatransfer this summer. Los Cules is still connected with bringing home Neymar from Paris St. Germain. And if the Brazilian superstar returns to the Camp Nou, Ousmane Dembele must give number 11 back to the previous owner.
