Barcelona will complete a £107m deal for Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann on July 1, according to a report.

Barcelona will reportedly complete a £107m move for Antoine Griezmann when the clause in his Atletico Madrid contract decreases at the start of next month.

Griezmann has been strongly linked with a move to Barca since announcing that he would be leaving Atletico in this summer's transfer window.

The speculation surrounding Paris Saint-Germain attacker Neymar and a potential return to Camp Nou led to suggestions that the Spanish champions could drop their interest in Griezmann.

However, according to The Telegraph, a contract between Barca and the Atletico forward was agreed in April and a £107m move will go through at the start of July.

Griezmann, who played a key role in France winning the 2018 World Cup, has scored 133 goals in 257 appearances for Diego Simeone's side since arriving from Real Sociedad in the summer of 2014.

The attacker has only managed six goals in his 26 appearances against Barca in all competitions, though, ending on a winning team on just four occasions.
