Barcelona get Griezmann but Atletico contest 120-million-euro fee

Griezmann ya es cul

Barcelona, which won La Liga last season by nine points, has strengthened itself at the expense of second-placed Atletico Madrid by signing its leading scorer in each of the last five campaigns.

Barca confirmed the signing of Griezmann on Friday on a five-year deal after a solicitor representing the forward deposited money for his buy-out clause at La Liga headquarters in Madrid.

Antoine Griezmann insists he has nothing to apologise for over his move from Atletico Madrid to Barcelona.

Griezmann, 28, has been linked to Barcelona for years. Atletico claim they are due €80m more, because they feel the agreement between Barcelona and Griezmann predates the reduction in the buyout clause.

'Atlético de Madrid considers that the deposited amount is insufficient to cover his buyout clause, since it is obvious that the agreement between the player and FC Barcelona was closed before the clause was reduced from Euro 200 million to Euro 120 million.

He rejected an offer from Barcelona past year and revealed his thought process in a documentary called The Decision. Atletico Madrid have released an official statement iterating that Barcelona have paid less than what they are supposed to pay.

Atletico Madrid have announced they have already "initiated the procedures" to contest the signing, effectively taking Barcelona to court.

Griezmann announced in May that he would be leaving Atletico this summer, but it was not until July, when his release clause dipped, that Barca confirmed they wanted to sign him.

During five years with Atletico, Griezmann, a World Cup victor with France last summer, scored 133 goals in 257 appearances.

Griezmann joined Atletico in 2014 and has scored 133 goals in 257 appearances, lifting the Europa League in 2018.
