Breaking: Barcelona Signs Antoine Griezmann For €120m From Atletico Madrid

Breaking: Barcelona Signs Antoine Griezmann For €120m From Atletico Madrid 1Barcelona have officially announced the signing of Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid, with the French forward putting pen to paper after the Blaugrana paid his full €120 million (£107m/$134m) release clause. The move has not been without drama, however, as Atleti recently hit out at both Barca and Griezmann himself for their conduct after it was revealed that the two parties had been in negotiations and reached an agreement in March, a time during which Diego Simeone’s side were still fighting for La Liga and the Champions League.Breaking: Barcelona Signs Antoine Griezmann For €120m From Atletico Madrid 2

Indeed, Atletico were only informed by the World Cup winner in May that he wanted to leave at the end of the season, further frustrating the Spanish capital side after delaying making public his intention to stay in a televised announcement the season before. With the deal now completed, however, Griezmann will now link up with Lionel Messi and Co. as the Spanish champions aim to retain their Liga title.
