In recent hours it's been published that FC Barcelona and Atletico Madrid would be open to swapping Antoine Griezmann and Joao Feliz at the end of the season.

SPORT have learned that, several weeks back, Atletico approached Griezmann because they were aware that the Frenchman was ready to return to the club.

The obstacle for Diego Simeone's side is that they can't pay a euro due to the club's financial circumstances, therefore they're looking at exchange options.

With everyone on offer, there was no one that convinced Barça, which is when the Rojiblancos pushed for Felix to be involved, but Barça aren't sold on it.

Jorge Mendes, Felix's agent, is keen to take the player out of Atletico. Barça are waiting for the window to open and don't rule out letting Griezmann go, but only if it's a deal that benefits them.

If Barça can't find a favourable transfer, Griezmann will remain at Camp Nou next season.
