The Catalans triggered the 28-year-old’s €120 million release clause, securing the World Cup winners’ transfer to Camp Nou from Atletico Madrid
The French international was heavily linked with a move to Camp Nou last season, having shone in the Spanish capital with 94 goals in 180 league appearances, but instead opted to stay in Diego Simeone’s setup.
While Real Madrid have tasted plenty of European success in recent years, the Catalan giants have dominated La Liga, topping the table in four of the last five campaigns.
Adding another attacking option with a proven track record at the elite level in Spain and internationally is a daunting prospect for the rest of Spain’s top tier.
Last season was Griezmann’s lowest in terms of scoring in La Liga with 15 goals, although he has reached that mark in each of the last six league campaigns.
