FC Barcelona paid the Griezmann clause in summer for 120 million, but now another 15 would have been paid to avoid a conflict with Atleti
At the beginning of this month of July, confirmed one of the big movements of the market of traspasos: Antoine Griezmann turned into new footballer of the FC Barcelona for the next five seasons after the club culé credited the clause of rescission that the French attacker had in his agreement with the Athletic of Madrid.
Said quantity was of 120 million euros but the Athletic of Madrid issued a communiqué in which it left clear that considered insufficient said quantity and in which it demanded to the FC Barcelona 200 'kilos', the figure that Griezmann had stipulated in the clause before the day 1 July when, according to the Madrilenian, began the negotiations.
Already they have happened several weeks from that complaint of the group 'colchonero' and the last informations have desvelado that the FC Barcelona will make an extra payment of 15 million euros so that it sign the peace between both clubs, although with them the culés ensure the right of score on five players rojiblancos, between which are Saúl Ñíguez and José Giménez.
The curious of all this is that these 15 extra millions that the FC Barcelona will pay to the Athletic of Madrid will elevate the traspaso of Antoine Griezmann to the 135 'kilos' and will convert to the French in the third more expensive signing of all time, only surpassed by Neymar (when it went to the PSG by 222 millions) and Mbappé (to the same team by 180).
Until this event, the player that occupied the third place in the table of traspasos more expensive was Joao Félix (127,2 million euros), that curiously is the footballer that the Athletic of Madrid fichó pertinent of the Benfica to cover the place of Griezmann when this went to the Camp Nou.
