BARCELONA are not prioritising a move for Antoine Griezmann this summer, two years after he courted a switch to Manchester United.
Barca are known to be big admirers of the striker, 28, and he made a video declaring that he is leaving the Wanda Metropolitano this summer.
But now the Nou Camp hierarchy's interest appears to have cooled — while they weigh up a potential bid to get Neymar to return to Catalonia.
Griezmann has a £105million release clause on his contract, which has dropped from £175m and he would command a £288,000-a-week salary.

The Tottenham centre-back’s contract allows him to leave for £25million this summer, with United among his admirers.
Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would prefer to retain his current centre-backs and use his coaching ability to turn their form around.
But United are refusing to rule out an approach, especially given the reasonable fee for the Belgian international, 30.
The Red Devils are looking for defensive reinforcements as they failed to keep a clean sheet in their final 15 games of the season.
But Alderweireld, who is also on Arsenal’s radar, still expects to stay at Spurs next season for the final year of his contract.
Interested clubs have until two weeks before the transfer deadline on August 8 to lodge bids.
