Barcelona FC announced on Friday the signature of Antoine Griezmann.
Antoine Griezmann is officially at Barça, announced the Catalan club on social networks. “You were waiting for him. Griezmann is magnificent,” said Barça, who paid the €120 million release clause demanded by Atletico Madrid.
FC Barcelona adds that the 28-year-old Mâconnais signed until 2024 with a release clause set at €800 million.
This announcement concludes a long series. Already courted by Barça last summer, the French team striker had written about his choice to stay at Atletico in a documentary called La Décision, closing the door on a trip to Catalonia.
On May 14, Griezmann announced in a short video posted on the Colchoneros’ Twitter account his “decision to leave, to see other things and to take up other challenges”.
