Antoine Griezmann Aiming to ‘Win Everything’ With Barcelona Following €120m Atletico Switch

?New Barcelona forward Antoine Griezmann is hoping to ‘win everything’ with La Blaugrana after completing his long-awaited move from Atletico Madrid.

The Frenchman has been at the centre of speculation linking him with a switch away from the Spanish capital for much of his time with Los Rojiblancos, eventually joining Barça for €120m in early July. 


Having only won the Europa League, Supercopa de España and UEFA Super Cup in his five-year spell with Atleti, the 28-year-old is now looking to expand his collection of silverware.

?Barcelona were in the hunt for a superb treble as 2018/19 came to a close, yet fell to a stunning ?Liverpool fightback in the ?Champions League as they crashed out of Europe in the semis, before Valencia secured a 2-1 victory in their Copa del Rey decider.

Nevertheless, the club earned their eighth ?La Liga title in 11 years and are regular contenders for major honours, whilst ?Atletico are often billed as the dark horses.

Discussing his move to Catalonia during an unveiling at the club’s superstore, Griezmann said (as quoted by Marca): “I am very happy, very excited and eager to work with the team.

Here, I have new challenges, new targets and hopefully I can do it in the best possible way. The target is to win everything, including the Copa del Rey, La Liga Santander and the Champions League.

I spoke with Samuel Umtiti and Ousmane Dembele, with whom I am friends, and I want to have fun with them,” the striker explained. “I wanted to come here and my family followed me.

“Sometimes, you have to make decisions and it’s a joy to play by [Lionel Messi’s] side. I want to know what it is like on a day-to-day basis and in training.

“This is a great club and I want to work with my teammates and for the coach, have fun outside and on the field and hopefully bring a lot of joy and enjoy it together.”
