Antoine Griezmann will be perfect for Lionel Messi – Henry

In the words of Sky Sports pundit and former Barcelona star Thierry Henry, Barcelona target, Antione Griezmann will be a major boost to the attacking firepower of Barca and would form a perfect partnership with a superstar, Lionel Messi.

Reports keep linking the French forward with a move away from Atletico Madrid and Barcelona are one of the major contenders for his signature. Attackers, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, who both scored in the Clasico victory over Real Madrid today, and summer signing, Ousmane Dembele, who is not far away from returning from injury, would most likely be competing with Griezmann for the attacking three spots in Barcelona’s 4:3:3 formations.

But Arsenal Legend, Henry believes it would allow Valverde to rotate his squad, keep the squad competitive, and have them in the best condition possible.

“He can fit in perfectly,” Henry said of Griezmann.

“You want big players in big teams.

“If you had the option of, for example, today we said they were a bit short on the bench, I’m not saying he would be on the bench or Dembele would be on the bench, but if you can alternate, rotate at times and give those guys (a rest).

“I think Griezmann can fit into any team in the world at the minute.

“What I’m saying is you want big players in big teams.

“And so, if he goes there, I’m sure the Barcelona guys will welcome him.”
