Barcelona have announced the signing of Atletico Madrid attacker Antoine Griezmann.

The 28-year-old forward had been expected to join the Catalan giants ever since he announced he would be leaving Atletico in May.

Barcelona have signed Griezmann from La Liga rivals Atletico after paying his 120m euro (£107m) buyout clause.

The 28-year-old World Cup winner has signed a five-year deal which includes an 800m euro (£717m) release clause.

Griezmann joined Atletico from Real Sociedad in 2014 and scored 133 goals in 256 appearances.

He signed a new five-year deal in June 2018 but announced in May he would be leaving the club this summer.
