Antoine Griezmann is not welcome at the Camp Nou.
The Atletico Madrid star was met with rejection the last time he visited the Barcelona home.
He was whistled every time he touched the ball.
But now he might be joining the Blaugrana and according to former Barca captain Carles Puyol, fans will love him as soon as he scores a goal.
“First he has to come and if he comes, the fans will be with him like they are with all Barcelona players, but first he has to come,” Puyol told Marca.
“Great players are compatible, but you have to find a balance.”
He explained: “The season is very long, there are injuries and lots of competitions, so the better squad you have, the easier the results will come.”
“One thing is that Barcelona wants to sign players, but the interests of the player are always there.”
“Matthijs de Ligt has a lot of talent and a big future so he’ll look for the best offer,” he added.
“They are moments, you have to evaluate it, you have to understand why Neymar left.”
“If he’s a player who is available on the market, you can’t always look at the past.”
He also spoke about the possibility of a Victor Valdes return: “If he returns to Barcelona then I’ll be very happy for him because he’s my friend.”
“This is his home. I am happy with my other projects, in other years they’ve contacted me to join but I don’t want to be a coach, I’m more focussed on sporting management.”
