Miguel Ángel Gil Marín, president of Atletico Madrid, has announced that Frenchman Antoine Griezmann will go to FC Barcelona.

Grizmann had previously announced his departure from Rokhi Blancos after the end of the season, which raises controversies over his future and his preferred destination.

“It’s been known since March that Griezmman will play in Barcelona,” said Gil Marín to the Spanish sports daily Sport.

Marín’s statement in the same newspaper proves that the Barcelona team was negotiating Krezman’s commitment to join Bleu-grana before March.

Barcelona’s Spanish club is waiting to reduce the penalty clause in Griezmann’s contract from 200 to 120 million euros, from 1 July to contract with him at the new price.

Press reports had previously indicated that Paris Saint-Germain had begun negotiations with the player to include him in the Parisian team.
