Barcelona know that turning what has largely been a promising summer into a successful one rests on significantly reducing their wage bill, which means finalising the sale of Antoine Griezmann.
The French forward has failed to live up to expectations since arriving at the Camp Nou in the summer of 2019, and Barcelona have made no secret of their desire to part ways with him during this transfer window.
Griezmann has attracted interest from Paris Saint-Germain, as well as a host of top clubs in England, but it has emerged that he only has eyes on one destination.
As the Barcelona-based newspaper Sport have reported, Griezmann has told Barcelona that he would only be willing to leave the Camp Nou if it meant returning to Atletico Madrid.
However, Barcelona have struggled to find an agreement with Los Rojiblancos in recent days over a swap deal involving Griezmann and Saul Niguez.
Nevertheless, as the article in Sport goes on to add, Atletico Madrid are still looking to bring in the 30-year-old this summer.
