Every player has to feel, ‘I have to play good or I don’t play’ if you want to be consistent after what we have done in these last two seasons. “They have to feel - ‘I have to win again, if not I have problems, I’m in trouble, I cannot be longer here’. People say how beautiful it is [to win back to back titles] but we have to win again and again and again and the players have to feel that.

Bayern Munich missed out on Sané once. Griezman most likely destination seems to be Barcelona.
Sane to Bayern Munich - Griezman to Barcelona ?
Bayern Munich have opened discussions with Manchester City over the potential summer transfer of Leroy Sane. A report by the Daily Record’s Duncan Castles will excite Bayern Munich fans everywhere: according to their information, Bayern Munich has “been granted permission to speak to the Germany international’s representatives with a view to agreeing contractual terms.” The Daily Record argues that City does not want to risk “a situation in which the forward runs down his contract and transfer value.” But Bayern would still undoubtedly have to pay a massive transfer fee to land Sané. But they just might do it for Sané. He’s young, he’s German, he’s already an established star, and he’s set in the starting lineup of the German national team.

"It's been an incredible five years here. Thanks for everything, from the bottom of my heart," Griezmann said.
