It’s Official: Finally, Barcelona Sign Griezmann

Antoine Griezmann has completed his £108million move to Barcelona from Atletico Madrid.

The La Liga champions have been courting the Frenchman for the past two summers and have now finally landed their man after paying his release clause in full.

The forward, who was pictured on a boat during his holiday in Ibiza on Friday, has signed on the dotted line for Barcelona on a five-year deal, which includes an eye-watering buyout clause of £717m.

The 28-year-old will now join Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez to form a deadly trident at the top of the pitch for Barcelona.

Griezmann departs Atletico, having scored 133 goals in 257 appearances during his five-year spell at the club.

The forward came close to joining Barcelona last year before making a dramatic U-turn to sign a new contract, but earlier this summer expressed a clear desire to join the Catalan side.

Griezmann’s signing is expected to end speculation of Neymar making a sensational return to Barcelona this summer.

The nearby Mini Estadi has also been ruled out as an alternative venue to welcome Griezmann to Barcelona as it is currently hosting the Cirque du Soleil show.

Despite Barcelona’s decision not to present Griezmann, their marquee summer signing, the club remain confident that the France international will be accepted and become a hit with their fans.
