Antoine Griezmann has left Barcelona to return to Atlético de Madrid on the transfer deadline.
However, it is a one-year loan deal, with an option for Atleti to buy Griezmann for € 40million.
This was confirmed by transfer expert Fabrizio Romano in a tweet on Tuesday evening.
Romano wrote: “Antoine Griezmann returns to Atlético de Madrid, HERE WE GO! Agreement already concluded with Barcelona. Loan until June 2022 with € 40 million purchase option. ️
“Griezmann has a two-year contract plus an option. He’s RETURN to Atléti. Shocking shot of the day “.
Griezmann joined Barca in 2019 for € 108million in a controversial deal in which his La Liga rivals initiated legal action that was ultimately dismissed.
