'L'Equipe': Barca have now paid Griezmann's buyout clause

Barcelona 'will pay clause on Friday', lawyer will do it - Announcement to follow soon after Transfer: Barcelona to announce Griezmann deal on Friday

Lawyers for Antoine Griezmann are at LaLiga offices this afternoon.

Barcelona are expected to present Griezmann at the Camp Nou next week, with the club set to announce official details of his presentation in due course.

L'Equipe claim payment plans and Atleti's desire to include a part-exchange for Nelson Semedo held up the deal, before Barcelona submitted to paying the amount in full.

The 28-year-old becomes the club's fourth signing of the summer after Emerson, Frenkie de Jong and Neto.

Griezmann failed to show up for his side's pre-season gathering on Sunday after he had announced in May he would be leaving the Wanda Metropolitano but could not reveal his destination until his release clause dropped from €200 million to €120 million on July 1.

Jay Powell disagrees with Donald Trump on almost everything
The U.S. went off the gold standard 48 years ago, and most modern economists agree that the idea would wreak havoc on the economy. Last year, the Federal Reserve increased interest rates to prevent inflation, a move Trump has claimed has hurt the USA economy.

However, they delayed triggering the clause immediately in the hope they could negotiate a deal with Atletico which would allow them to pay the fee in instalments.

As a result of this lack of agreement, Barca have apparently chose to pay the buyout clause this Thursday so that the Frenchman can sign his five year contract this Friday. While their rivals Real Madrid have signed five new players, Barcelona themselves signed only two.

After Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu confirmed the meeting had taken place, the Rojiblancos released a strongly worded statement criticising both Barca and Griezmann's actions. They had talked him out of releasing another documentary-style video to make his announcement.

However, the 2018 World Cup victor spent only one more season with the Rojiblancos before announcing in May that he would be leaving the club this summer. He also won the Europa League, the UEFA Super Cup and the Spanish Super Cup in that time.
