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).
