Barcelona Got his move to the Camp Nou
Antoine Griezmann has explained his decision to reject Barcelona in the summer of 2018, stating that he always believed he’d have another chance to make the move.
The decision to reject the Catalans caused a stir last year, particularly the manner in which he turned them down, but one year on the Frenchman has completed his switch from Atletico Madrid.
“My father taught me as a child that trains don’t just pass once,” he said.
“The time has come to accept the challenge of a new destination.
“I’ll defend the Barcelona shirt with dedication and commitment. It’s our moment, it’s our path.”
Griezmann will be presented on Sunday at 18:15, after undergoing his medical examinations in the morning.
The Blaugrana paid the forward’s release clause on Friday, but the Rojiblancos consider the 120 million euros to be insufficient, expressing their understanding that an agreement had been reached in March for a 200 million euro fee.
