VARIOUS OF FANS WAITING OUTSIDE BARCA'S STORE STORY: Antoine Griezmann posed on Saturday (July 13) next to his new Barca jersey as dozens of fans gathered outside to get a glimpse of the forward.

Barca signed Griezmann from Atletico Madrid for 120 million euros ($135 million) on a five-year deal after paying his release clause, the La Liga champions said in a statement on Friday (July 12).

The club have been trying to lure Griezmann to the Nou Camp since November 2017, but the forward signed a new five-year deal with Atletico in June 2018 that had a 200 million euros buy-out clause, which dropped to 120 million euros on July 1 this year.

Atletico said that Griezmann's May 14 announcement that he was leaving the club is proof a deal had already been struck between the player and Barcelona before his buy-out clause dropped.

Atletico released on Friday (July 12) a statement saying that the club considers that the deposited amount is insufficient to cover Griezmann's buyout clause.

Griezmann is expected to sign the new contract on Sunday (July 14) linking the player with the club for the next five seasons with a buyout clause of 800 million euros.

After the signing the player will be officially unveiled at the Nou Camp.
