The confirmation of the transfer of Antoine Griezmann, Atlético Madrid to FC Barcelona, was made this Friday afternoon at 3:10 pm through a communication on the Twitter account of the club blaugrana and a message: " Griezmann, it's beautiful! ".
The reigning Spanish champions paid off Atlético's release clause of 120 million euros. This officialization comes after a few weeks of procrastination. Griezmann, 28, considered for weeks that his transfer in Catalonia was acquired but a scent of doubt had been invited these days under the effect of the Neymar file, also eager to join Barca.
If the transfer of the Brazilian is still very hypothetical, that of Griezmann is very real. The former striker of Real Sociedad, Atlético and the France team reinforces an offensive sector already well supplied with Messi, Suarez, Coutinho and Dembélé to this day.
