Barcelona sign Griezmann from Atletico for 120m euros

Barcelona sign Griezmann from Atletico for 120m euros

Barcelona have officially announced the capture of Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid, who have raised a dispute in the money paid by the La Liga champions.

Spain's Barcelona signed French star Antoine Griezmann from their La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid on Friday.

Contacted by AFP on Saturday, the club refused to comment.

However, Atletico have "initiated procedures" with a view to receiving a higher fee because they believe the transfer was agreed before the 28-year-old's buyout clause was reduced from 200m euros (£179.3m) on July 1.

Atletico, however, said it will demand that Barcelona pay what it considers the full €200 million since "it is obvious the commitment between the player and the Football Club Barcelona predates the lowering of the clause". His new contract includes a $900 million buyout clause.

"I would like to thank all of you for the love you have shown me during these five years", Griezmann said in a video released on the club's Twitter page.

With Antoine Griezmann's move to Barcelona finally complete, Shaka Hislop explains the different ways he can be implemented into their attack.

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

"It was also prior to the date on which the clause was modified the communication that the player made on May 14 announcing his disengagement from the club".

With Victor Lindelof now linked with a move to Barcelona, ESPN FC's Sid Lowe wonders if the Catalan giants are waving the white flag on their pursuit of Matthijs de Ligt.

Griezmann won the Europa League, the Spanish Super Cup and the Uefa Super Cup during his time at Atletico and was the team's top scorer in each of the last five seasons.

Barcelona have told forward Philippe Coutinho that he will not be sold this summer but someone from within the club maybe leaking transfer speculation to the media, according to the player's agent Kia Joorabchian.
