Barca Capture Griezmann –

Antoine Griezmann

Barcelona have signed Antoine Griezmann after they deposited the Atletico Madrid forward’s €120 million buyout clause with La Liga.

Griezmann, 28, is expected to arrive in
Barcelona over the weekend, where he will pen a five-year contract with the
Spanish champions before joining preseason training next week. The deal also
includes an €800m release clause.

France international becomes Barca’s third signing of the summer, following the
arrivals of Frenkie de Jong and Neto.
Griezmann’s release clause dropped from €200m on July 1, and sources told ESPN
FC at the time that the Blaugrana were working on a deal for the attacker.
