BREAKING: Barcelona Sign €120m Griezmann

Published

Antoine Griezmann

Barcelona have officially announced the signing of Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid, with the French forward putting pen to paper after the Blaugrana paid his full €120 million (£107m/$134m) release clause.

The move has not been without drama, however, as Atletico recently hit out at both Barca and Griezmann himself for their conduct after it was revealed that the two parties had been in negotiations and reached an agreement in March, a time during which Diego Simeone’s side were still fighting for La Liga and the Champions League.

Indeed, Atletico were only informed by the World Cup winner in May that he wanted to leave at the end of the season, further frustrating the Spanish capital side after delaying making public his intention to stay in a televised announcement the season before.

With the deal now completed, however, Griezmann will now link up with Lionel Messi and Co. as the Spanish champions aim to retain their Liga title.

Cristiano Ronaldo might be locked down in Madeira but he is clearly not letting himself go amid the Coronavirus crisis.

The Juventus forward retreated to his native island towards the start of the month after his mother suffered a stroke and he has decided to stay there as COVID19 spread across the world.

While the Serie A season has been suspended, Ronaldo has been staying at a luxury villa that overlooks the Atlantic Ocean.

And the 35-year-old has kept up his famously stringent workout regime, posing in a photo that his sister Katia uploaded to her Instagram.

The Portuguese forward showed off his six-pack and incredible dorsal muscles, and pulled up his shorts in trademark style as he stood with members of his family, including his niece Alicia and other sister Elma.

Ronaldo was in top form during the season before Serie A was suspended, and had hit a staggering 13 goals in his last 11 matches in all competition.

He has also been clear to his followers that they must follow the government advice and stay at home: “If you ever dreamed of playing for millions around the world, now is your chance. Play inside, play for the world.”

It was revealed over the weekend that Ronaldo will join forces with his agent Jorge Mendes to help fund the fight against coronavirus in Portugal.

AS report that Mendes has spent a significant amount of money buying 200,000 gowns and three ventilators for the hospital in Porto, where a National Institute of Medical Emergency (INEM) field tent has been set up to facilitate with operations due to a flood of coronavirus patients.

Meanwhile Barcelona’s Hospital Clinic said it had received a donation from FC Barcelona captain Lionel Messi to help it fight the virus.

“Thank you Leo, for your support and commitment,” the hospital added in a tweet.

While the hospital did not say how much money the player donated, Catalan sports daily Mundo Deportivo said it was one million euros.

With the pandemic spreading across the world, Spain has been one of the worst-hit countries, logging the third highest number of deaths with the latest toll standing at 2,696, and the total number of infections nearing 40,000.

Nigerian striker, Odion Ighalo is set to sign permanently for Manchester United, as the Premier League club lines up a £15m bid for him.

Earlier this month, Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hinted that United were interested in making Ighalo’s move permanent.

‘He will improve and get better,’ said the United boss. He has qualities we saw in him that we needed. And we will still need those qualities next season — so let’s see what we will do.’
