Antoine Griezmann will sign for Barcelona this summer, Atletico Madrid’s CEO, Gil Martin, has confirmed.
According to him, the club knew Griezmann would be joining their LaLiga rivals since March.
“We know since last March that Griezmann is going to Barcelona,” he told to Sport.
The player’s release clause is currently €200million, after he signed a new contract with Atletico just last summer.
Griezmann has told the club few months ago that he would be ready to buy out his contract.
However, that figure drops to €120m euros from July 1.
Griezmann is expected to sign a five-year deal at the Nou Camp.
