Barcelona Signs Griezmann


French forward, Antoine Griezmann has signed a five-year deal with Barcelona which includes the 120 million euro buyout clause from Atlético Madrid.

The deal is said to be worth 800 million euros.

The 28-year-old World Cup winner has signed a five-year deal which includes an 800m euro (£717m) release clause.

The 28-year-old World Cup winner joined Atletico from Real Sociedad in 2014 and scored 133 goals in 256 appearances.

He signed a new five-year deal in June 2018 but announced in May he would be leaving the club this summer.

Griezmann becomes the world’s sixth most expensive signing behind Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Philippe Coutinho, Joao Felix and Ousmane Dembele.

Griezmann won the Europa League, the Spanish Super Cup and the Uefa Super Cup during his time at Atletico and was the team’s top scorer in each of the last five seasons.

He becomes Barca’s fourth major signing of the summer, following the acquisition of midfielder Frenkie de Jong from Ajax, goalkeeper Neto from Valencia and defender Emerson from Brazilian side Atletico-MG.
