Antoine Griezmann Gets A New Clause In Deal As Barcelona And Atletico Madrid Finally Reaches An Agreement

In order to acquire the World Cup winner in 2019, Barcelona paid Atletico his £107 million release clause.

After only two seasons, he returned to the Wanda Metropolitano and signed a two-year loan agreement.

According to numerous reports, the two agreed that Atletico would have to permanently sign Griezmann for €40 million if he participated in 50% of the games for which he was available.

Atletico started reducing the amount of time the Frenchman played this season after seeing him in 80% of games during his rookie campaign.

Up until the El Clasico loss to Real Madrid on September 18, a curious pattern had developed in which Griezmann entered every game after the 60-minute mark.

Barca was rumored to be contemplating a lawsuit because they felt cheated.

However, the issue has been settled as stated by Joan Laporta, the president of Barca. A lesser guaranteed amount of €20 million will be paid by Atletico, plus an additional €4 million in add-ons.

In the event that Atletico decides to sell the player in the future, the Blaugrana will also get more money.

“It’s done and it’s a good deal – we’ll receive €20m fixed and €4m in add-ons,” Laporta said.

“There is another clause in the player’s sale agreement is that if Atletico Madrid decides to sell the player in the future, they will have to pay us the difference that remains up to the €40m that was set before.”

Griezmann has three goals this season in 10 appearances across all competitions. The former Real Sociedad player, according to Graeme Bailey of 90 Min, has agreed to a new contract that would keep him at Atleti until 2026.

Griezmann is a versatile player who has experience playing as an attacking midfielder, a winger, and a striker. He is renowned for his attacking, passing, and supportive defense.

Griezmann’s return to Atletico Madrid from Barcelona

Unexpectedly, Antoine Griezmann made his way back to Atlético Madrid from Barcelona on a season-long loan with a €40 million (£34.4 million) buyout option.

Expectations weren’t met by the €120 million deal that saw the France international go from Atlético to Barcelona in 2019.

In 74 La Liga games for the Catalan club, he only managed to score 22 goals.

Jao Felix had been a potential trade target, but Barcelona decided to sign Sevilla’s Luuk de Jong for a season-long loan with an option for a permanent transfer.

Griezmann played five fantastic seasons at Atlético after leaving Real Sociedad. With 94 goals in 180 league games, his goal total was far higher than it was at Camp Nou.
