4 ways Valverde could use Griezmann next season
Atletico's president confirmed Antoine's transfer to Barcelona. Now, the only thing missing is an official announcement from the Catalans. Considering this, we present you four ways Barcelona Barca could line up with the Frenchman in the team.
1. We know that Valverde prefers not risking and trusts experienced players. Thus, a front trio of Antoine Griezmann, Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi looks most probable. The midfield is unlikely to change.
2. The Uruguayan has been out of form for a long part of the last season and the upcoming Copa America will show how fit he really is to continue at Barca. Considering this, Ernesto could replace the 32-year-old with the Frenchman.
3. Another option would be to play Barca's captain in the false nine role and put Antoine and Dembele on the wings. This would benefit all three players, as Ousmane plays best on the right, Messi likes to drop deep while Griezmann played on the left at Real Sociedad.
4. Finally, the 28-year-old's arrival doesn't mean Philippe Coutinho has to leave the starting XI. The Basque coach could switch the Brazilian in midfield and play a front three Griezmann, Suarez and Messi.
