The Catalan club announced the signing of the France World Cup winner on Friday afternoon after activating his £108million (€120million) release clause.

The transfer saga has rumbled on for months with Griezmann even announcing he was leaving Atleti before he had officially signed for someone else.

While the saga appears to be over, Atletico have contested the transfer as they claim Barca used a loophole to avoid having to pay a much higher fee for Griezmann.

They believe the ‘commitment of the player and FC Barcelona’ was closed before his buyout clause dropped from £179million (€200million) to £108million on July 1.

The statement read: “Antoine Griezmann, represented by his lawyer, has appeared at the headquarters of the Professional Football League to unilaterally terminate the contract linking the player with Atlético Madrid, with Fútbol Club Barcelona having deposited the sum of €120million euros in the name and on behalf of the footballer.

“Atlético Madrid considers that the amount deposited is insufficient to meet its termination clause, since it is obvious that the commitment of the player and FC Barcelona was closed before the clause was reduced from €200million euros to €120million.
