Antoine Griezmann is set to join Barcelona


The Atletico Madrid forward looks to have finally decided upon his summer destination and it is Barcelona much to the delight of their fans, according to reports from The Catalan Media Corporation.

The 26-year old has an agreement with the Blaugrana to join them at the end of the current season where Atletico are the only real competition for the Catalan outfit in their quest to win the La Liga.

Either way, the Frenchman is set to join Lionel Messi and co. with Barcelona reportedly set to pay his exit clause of €100 million. The superstar signed a new contract last summer to stay at the Wanda Metropolitano which included a release clause of €200 million. However, that price will go down by half this summer and the La Liga leaders are willing to cash in on it.


Further, Griezmann is set to be welcomed with open arms in the Barcelona dressing room, as per Sport.

The news outlet states that he is one of the highest-rated players in the eyes of the current squad. While Neymar’s replacements, Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho, will need time to acclimatise to the league, the former Real Sociedad striker is well-versed with football in Spain and can immediately propel the Blaugrana to win more trophies.

Thus, Ernesto Valverde looks set to have another match-winner in his ranks this summer.
