Barcelona and Atletico Madrid have agreed on a fee for Antoine Griezmann after a long, drawn-out saga.

However he headed back to the Wanda Metropolitano after just two seasons, joining on a two-year loan deal.

It was widely reported that the arrangement between the two was that Atletico would have to sign him permanently for €40 million if Griezmann played in 50% games he was available for.

In his first season the Frenchman appeared in 80% of matches and so in order to bring the percentage down, Atletico began limiting his game-time this term.

But now, as revealed by Barca president Joan Laporta, the matter has been resolved. Atletico will pay a lower guaranteed sum of €20 million, with a further €4 million in add-ons.

The Blaugrana will also receive extra funds if Atletico decide to sell the player in the future.

“It’s done and it’s a good deal – we’ll receive €20m fixed and €4m in add-ons,” Laporta said.

“There is another clause in the player’s sale agreement is that if Atletico Madrid decides to sell the player in the future, they will have to pay us the difference that remains up to the €40m that was set before.”

Griezmann has scored three times in 10 appearances in all competitions this season. According to Graeme Bailey of 90 Min, the former Real Sociedad man has agreed a new deal that will keep him at Atleti until 2026.
