Barca Announce Griezmann Capture

Barcelona have completed the signing of Antoine Griezmann from fellow La Liga club, Atletico Madrid for a fee believed to be in the region of €120m.

The club announced the capture of the French forward on Friday via its social media channels.

Barca are believed to have paid the player’s buy-out clause of €120m (£107m/$134m).

However, Atletico Madrid Chief Executive Officer, Miguel Angel Gil, is said to be furious as he believes Griezmann agreed terms with Barcelona in March when his release clause was still at €200m (£180m).

The 28-year old French international signed a five-year deal which is expected to keep him at Camp Nou until 2024.
