. Kane, who is presently on fire for England at Euro 2020, is a problematic acquisition due to Tottenham's reluctance to trade. Given their financial difficulties, Barcelona, on the other hand, is far more accommodating. They're willing to talk. 

Pep Guardiola has long coveted Griezmann, and the City-Barca relationship has been particularly tumultuous this summer. 

This summer has already seen Sergio Aguero and Eric Garcia leave the former for the latter on free transfers, and more business between the two appears to be on the cards. 

A part-trade including Aymeric Laporte, Bernardo Silva, and Joao Cancelo has been mooted in certain quarters. 

Griezmann is well-liked at Nou Camp and has performed admirably; in 36

games last season, he scored 13 goals and provided eight assists for the Catalans. He is, however, a high-earner in the team, trailing only Lionel Messi in terms of earnings. 

Barcelona, which is presently slashing its pay cost to be able to afford to extend Messi's contract, may have to sell one of its most marketable assets.
