Barcelona Sign Antoine Griezmann

Barcelona Sign Antoine Griezmann

Alejandro Moreno says Barcelona are negotiating poorly and are limiting their options by not wanting to part ways with Ousmane Dembele.

Philippe Coutinho has been linked with a move away from Barcelona this summer, but the Brazilian is staying put, according to his agent Kia Joorabchian.

Now the latest gossip suggests that Coutinho could even lose his number seven shirt to new arrival Antoine Griezmann, amping up talk of an exit.

Atletico have said that Barca had an agreement with Griezmann before his release clause dropped to €120 million on 1st June, and hence they will need to pay the prior clause which was €200 million.

Posted below are the players with the top ten release clauses.

This past season saw the little magician score just five and assist two in 34 La Liga outings.

The France global becomes Barca's third signing of the summer, following the arrivals of Frenkie De Jong and Neto.

An interactive map on the USGS website shows several dozen people in the Vancouver area reported feeling the shaking. There was a magnitude 6.4 quake centered in Ridgecrest, California, July 4 and a 7.1 on July 5 in the same area.

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'.

Barcelona said it paid Atletico the €120 million ($134 million) to trigger his escape clause, and that his new buyout will be €800 million ($900 million). "Atletico Madrid wishes to express its strongest disapproval of the behavior of both, especially FC Barcelona, for prompting the player to break his contractual relationship with Atletico Madrid". He didn't and was subsequently fined.

The Madrid club added they had "started procedures" to ensure they receive the amount they feel is owed to them.

ESPN FC first revealed in March that Griezmann was looking to leave Atletico.

He rejected an offer from Barcelona previous year and revealed his thought process in a documentary called The Decision.

The 28-year-old joins the Catalan club on a five-year deal with a reported release clause of 800m euros in his contract.

The Frenchman scored 133 goals in all competitions for Atleti.
