Barcelona reportedly proposed a swap deal involving Antoine Griezmann and Atletico Madrid playmaker Joao Felix earlier this month.

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has reportedly offered Atletico Madrid the opportunity to swap Joao Felix with their former player Antoine Griezmann.

After a successful spell at Atletico, Griezmann made the switch to Camp Nou last summer, only to endure a disappointing first campaign with the Catalan giants.

The reaction to the Frenchman's poor form has played a minor part in the disarray both on and off the pitch, which has also contributed to Lionel Messi requesting an exit from his long-term club.

According to Marca, Bartomeu attempted to resolve the situation earlier this month by making contact with Atletico.

However, despite being given the chance to re-sign arguably their best player of the last decade, Atletico have no interest in parting ways with Portugal international Felix.

Griezmann is now expected to play a key role under recently-appointed head coach Ronald Koeman.
