Antoine Griezmann: FC Barcelona sign French striker for €120 million

Additionally, the Brazilian player is said to have requested to meet Leonardo in order to reiterate his wish to leave the Parc des Princes.

Sevan Karian, the lawyer of Antoine Griezmann, has stated his discomfort with the way in which Atletico Madrid have handled themselves after the forward's move to Barcelona was confirmed on Friday.

The World Cup victor, 28, has signed a five-year deal with the Spanish giants after they activated the £107m clause in his deal with Atleti.

While the signings of Antoine Griezmann and Frenkie de Jong have been completed, there are more on the list.

Last season Barcelona also had an offer accepted by the Madrid side, however, Griezmann rejected the offer the club made, a decision he explained in his personal documentary called 'The Decision'.

"FC Barcelona has paid the 120 million euro buyout clause to release Antoine Griezmann from Atlético Madrid", a statement read on their official website.

Atletico complained that Barcelona and Griezmann negotiated the deal before the buy-out price dropped from 200 million euros at the start of July.

"My father taught me as a child that trains don't just pass once", he said.

"Now it's time to take on the challenge of a new destination".

Griezmann spent five seasons with Atletico Madrid, making 257 appearances for the club across all competitions and scoring 133 goals. Finally, our paths cross.

Atlético Madrid came calling in 2014 and snapped up Griezmann in a €54m deal, with the France global going on to make 257 appearances for the club across all competitions.

Real Sociedad will be getting approximately €24m (£21.5m) due to the 20 percent sell-on clause in the initial deal to sell the player to Atletico.
