Antoine Griezmann will sign for Barcelona this summer, Atletico Madrid's CEO, Gil Martin, has confirmed.

Last month, the 2018 FIFA World Cup victor announced that he would be leaving Atletico Madrid, with whom he had clinched the Spanish Super Cup, UEFA Europa League and UEFA Super Cup titles in a five-year spell.

But while Barcelona have always been mentioned as the team closest to clinching his signature, a potential move is still shrouded in doubt.

"We know since last March that Griezmann is going to Barcelona", he told to Sport.

Part of the motivation behind such a delay lies in the details of Griezmann's Atletico contract, which was renewed amidst great fanfare and with a video produced by none other than Gerard Pique last summer.

Barcelona have always been linked with a move for Griezmann and the 28-year-old has a release clause in his contract that the La Liga champions are reportedly ready to trigger.

Antoine Griezmann spoke about his future after France's 4-0 win over Andorra in Euro 2020 qualifying.

Under the terms of the deal, the 2018 World Cup victor is subject to a release clause worth a whopping 200 million if he moves away from the Wanda Metropolitana before July 2019.
