Manchester City reject Antoine Griezmann

After a week of drama about a proposed move to City for Barcelona player Antoine Griezmann, Manchester City have rejected the idea of signing Griezmann this summer.

One of Manchester City's most reliable journalists Simon Bajkowski has said that Manchester City have 'no interest' in signing Antoine Griezmann this summer.

The news comes after a plethora of newspapers and journalists stated that a move for Antoine Griezmann to City was on the cards due to Barcelona's financial situation. Barcelona must reduce their wage bill by over 200 million euros to sign former Man City players, Sergio Aguero (who recently just won the Copa America), Eric Garcia and be able to register Lionel Messi along with some others.

Barca have tried to tempt Man City with a Griezmann move but City have told Barcelona of their lack of interest.

Barcelona have also tried to claim some City players such as Aymeric Laporte but due to the financial situation mentioned above it is heavily unlikely any purchase of a City player could happen. Barcelona simply don't have the funds.

Manchester City now rest their eyes on Harry Kane, Jack Grealish and Erling Haaland to see if they can claim one of them before the transfer period ends.
