Antoine Griezmann: Barcelona confirm signing of Atletico Madrid striker in €120m deal

Barcelona sign French star Griezmann

Barcelona signed Antoine Griezmann after paying his $135 million buyout clause. His new contract includes a $900 million buyout clause.

It was reported that the Brazilian was desperate to rejoin Barcelona, his former employers, this summer, but the signing of Antoine Griezmann appears to have thrown those plans awry for now.

Barcelona have reportedly shelled out the requisite €120 million release clause in his contract to the LFP. Griezmann's new deal runs through June 30, 2024. Plus, Dan Thomas, Alejandro Moreno and Shaka Hislop break down Barcelona's projected XI for next season, with the arrivals of Griezmann and Frenkie de Jong, and discuss the futures of potential Barca outcasts Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele.

Cerezo also hit out at Griezmann, who confirmed in May he would be leaving Atletico.

That decision lasted just one year, as Griezmann announced before the conclusion of the La Liga campaign that he would leave the club at the end of the season before completing his move to Barcelona on Friday. "It's been very hard for me to take this path, but I fell that it's what I need". "I was told they have no intention of selling him, that Barcelona have not spoken to anyone and that stories to the contrary are simply not true", Joorabchian said, emphatically. "The truth is you're in my heart".

Griezmann scored 133 goals in 256 games at Atletico. He rejected an offer to join Barcelona in 2018.

He was scouted by Basque club Real Sociedad at the age of 14.

Barca confirmed the signing of Griezmann on Friday on a five-year deal after a solicitor representing the forward deposited money for his buy-out clause at La Liga headquarters in Madrid. PSG's director Leonardo said that the Brazil worldwide will be allowed to leave the club once an appropriate offer comes, but the club is expected to play hardball if Barcelona try to make a move for him. His presentation events can be watched on FCBarcelona.com and on Barca TV. He will sign his contract Sunday.
