Sevan Karian, the lawyer of Antoine Griezmann, has stated his discomfort with the way in which Atletico Madrid have handled themselves after the forward’s move to Barcelona was confirmed on Friday.

Los Rojiblancos have claimed that while Griezmann‘s release clause dropped from 200 million euros to 120m euros on July 1, there seemed to be an agreement between the player and Barcelona prior to this date, so they believe that the 200m euro payment should be met.

Karian is surprised by the decisions and statements of Atletico, he told L’Equipe.

“Antoine is very disappointed by the attitude of Atletico and their leaders, who are acting in bad faith and are communicating the opposite of what they told him in person,” Karian said.

The decision to demand this further 80m euros is not understood at Barcelona, while Griezmann‘s lawyer is not concerned by Atletico‘s threat to take legal action.

“Let them do as they see fit, we will do the same if necessary,” Karian noted.

Meanwhile, Griezmann is trying to avoid this controversy and hopes to be presented on Sunday at the Camp Nou.

“At the moment, for him, he only wants to think about this new chapter in his career,” Karian added.

“He wants to celebrate this weekend by discovering his new home.”
