Barcelona, Atletico Madrid Agree On £100m Deal For Antoine Griezmann

Barcelona and Atletico Madrid have reportedly agreed on a £100m deal to bring Antoine Griezmann to Camp Nou.

The 27-year-old has been linked with a move to the Blaugrana for a number of months, prompting Atletico to publicly criticise the Catalans for their pursuit of the forward.

According to The Sun, Griezmann has a £88m release clause in his current deal, but Barca are willing to pay extra in order to facilitate the move and restore cordial relations with Los Colchoneros.

Griezmann, who wanted his future sorted before spearheading France’s attack at the World Cup, looked set on a move to Manchester United last summer, but remained at the Wanda Metropolitano after the club was hit with a transfer ban.

The former Real Sociedad striker has made 207 appearances for Atletico since his 2014 switch to the Spanish capital, scoring 110 goals and registering 40 assists.
