Barcelona Will pay full 120 million euro fee
Barcelona are settling the final details as they prepare to pay Antoine Griezmann‘s release clause on Friday.
Atletico Madrid had refused to negotiate with Barcelona following Griezmann‘s no-show for pre-season, leaving the Catalan club with no choice but to pay his full 120 million euro release clause.
The news of Barcelona‘s imminent payment was first reported by Mundo Deportivo and has since been confirmed by MARCA’s sources.
The date for Griezmann‘s presentation is still unknown as we wait for LaLiga to confirm that everything is in order for the transfer to go through.
Barcelona hope to present him on Saturday before Barcelona‘s first-team squad return for pre-season on Monday.
Barcelona have attempted to pay the release clause in the last few hours and have denied that they’ve asked for a loan to complete the transaction sooner.
