Barcelona sign Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann

Barcelona have signed France forward Antoine Griezmann from La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid after paying his £107m buyout clause.

The 28-year-old World Cup winner has signed a five-year deal which includes an £717m release clause.

Griezmann joined Atletico from Real Sociedad in 2014 and scored 133 goals in 256 appearances.

He signed a new five-year deal in June 2018 but announced in May he would be leaving the club this summer.

The 2018 World Cup winner becomes the world’s sixth most expensive signing behind Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Philippe Coutinho, Joao Felix and Ousmane Dembele.
