Griezmann is no longer an Atletico player. The French striker's lawyers have deposited this morning at the headquarters of the League 120 million of its termination clause to dissociate from the rojiblanco club. His commitment to Barcelona, which has been behind his signing for two years, will be announced shortly.
Last summer, when everything indicated that he would sign for the Barça club, the Frenchman announced through a documentary broadcast on television his decision to continue at Atlético. The Madrid club made an effort to renew it with a chip of the level of the big world stars and increased its termination clause to 200 million. An effort focused on winning the Champions League, which played its final in the Metropolitan.
There was no prize for the sacrifice of the club, which fell in the second round against Juventus. The French clause was reduced to 120 million on July 1, but several problems have caused Barcelona to delay the deposit of that amount at the League headquarters. It has been the player's lawyers who have paid the clause to release him from his contract with Atlético.
The intention of Barcelona is to present it this weekend and that Griezmann starts training this Monday with the rest of his teammates.
