Barcelona to save €36m with the sale of Antoine Griezmann

Barcelona president Joan Laporta revealed the figures related to the sale of Antoine Griezmann to Atlético Madrid, report Marca.

Barcelona and Atlético Madrid have arrived at an agreement that will see the finalisation of the sale of the French striker. According to the deal, Los Colchoneros will pay €20m to the Catalan side instead of the €40m initially agreed in the summer of 2021.

Atlético Madrid would also potentially be liable to pay an additional €4m in variables depending on whether they qualify for the Champions League this season and subsequently to the knock-out stages of the competition.

The Blaugrana were keen to get the deal over the line before the commencing of the World Cup in Qatar as they were wary that things could change after the tournament.

Joan Laporta also told stakeholders that the club will save €36m in wages thanks to the operation, helping improve Barcelona’s financial standing.
