Antoinne Griezmann Transfer: Stats Show Likely Impact Of Barcelona’s Raid

Barcelona sign Griezmann from Atletico for 120m euros - Xinhua | English.news.cn

One day after Griezmann's transfer to Barcelona was announced, a number of fans turned up at the Legends Walkway (Paseo de las Leyendas) near Atlético's stadium and covered the French player's plaque with stickers and dirt.

A World Cup champion with France past year, Griezmann's task will be to help Barcelona win the Champions League for a sixth time.

Griezmann's move to Barcelona has been a long time coming.

Barcelona have iterated that Antoine Griezmann will sign a five-year deal with the club, with the Catalan giants inserting a mammoth €800 million buyout clause in his contract.

His Barcelona contract, which will be officially signed on Sunday ahead of his unveiling, contains a buyout clause of 800m euros (£733m).

"Now it's time to take on the challenge of a new destination.

President Trump to issue executive order about citizenship question on 2020 census
White House and Justice Department officials spent the Independence Day holiday considering ways to include the question. The announcement, he said, will be focused on the census and citizenship. "We're aiming to count everyone", he said.

It was also prior to the date on which the clause was modified the communication that the player made on May 14 announcing his disassociation from the club", it said.

"Atletico believes that the amount deposited is insufficient since it is obvious that the commitment of the player and Barcelona was closed before the aforementioned clause was reduced from 200 to 120 million euros".

Atletico, who finished second last season in La Liga - nine points behind Barcelona, have now seen their third high profile departure this window. The Frenchman then completed his U-turn in May by confirming that he would be leaving the club at the end of the season.

He also terminated his contract with Atletico on Friday.

While Barcelona was jubilantly celebrating the capture of Antoine Griezmann on a $135 million transfer, his former club Atletico Madrid was preparing court documents to contest the transfer.

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