In numbers, Atletico Madrid implements a plan to deprive Barcelona of 40 million euros for this reason
Atletico Madrid continues its plans to deprive Barcelona of 40 million euros at the end of the current season in the transfer of French international Antoine Griezmann, the Rojiblancos striker, during the current season.
The Barcelona club administration has set a condition in the contract with Atletico Madrid to pay the full amount of money if Griezmann participates in 50% of the matches.
Atletico Madrid’s intentions became clear after the player’s participation came after the 60th minute of the matches that the team played in the Spanish League and the Champions League.
Griezmann participated in 37 matches in various competitions last season with Atletico Madrid, while the number of his participations in general internationally with his country reached 108 matches.
The report stressed that the level of Griezmann’s participation last season in at least 45 minutes in 30 games, which means that he was qualified to complete the contract.
Griezmann is currently spending his second spell at Atletico Madrid after an impressive five seasons between 2014 and 2019, where the France international scored 133 goals in 257 games and became one of the world’s central attacking players.
The French playmaker also enjoyed a fantastic 2018 World Cup season with France in Russia, where Didier Deschamps’ side went on to win the competition, Griezmann scored in the final, and then moved on to Barcelona.
But he had a tough time at the Camp Nou, having scored just 22 goals in 74 La Liga appearances, which eventually saw him join Atletico Madrid two years later.
Griezmann is currently in the middle of a two-year loan spell in the Spanish capital, but he has again failed to find his best form after scoring only eight times in 36 games last season.
Griezmann has not started any matches this season with Atletico Madrid
The average of Griezmann’s participation as a substitute during the current season is as follows:
First round: 63rd minute
Second round: minute 63
Third round: 63rd minute
Fourth round: 63rd minute
Champions League first round: 61st minute
Fifth round: 63rd minute
