Barcelona set to trigger Griezmann release clause

Antoine Griezmann has told Atletico Madrid he will leave the club this summer with La Liga rivals Barcelona set to pay his £108m release clause, according to reports.

In a farewell message on the club’s website, the forward said: “It’s been an incredible five years; Thank you very much for everything, I take you in the heart.”

Griezmann, 28, has been linked with a move to Atletico’s La Liga rivals Barcelona since last year, and speculation has only intensified since the Catalonian club were embarrassed by Liverpool in the Champions League semi-final.

Barcelona are ready to pay Griezmann’s £108m release clause.

Griezmann joined from Real Sociedad in 2014. Last season he helped Atletico win the Europa League.
