- The Catalans plan to confirm the Frenchman’s move publicly as soon as La Liga report the validity of the transfer.
- Barcelona will pay the requested €120m tomorrow, July 12, at the La Liga headquarters.
Barcelona will reportedly announce Griezmann’s signing tomorrow as the club will finally pay the release clause for the Frenchman, which is €120m.
As soon as La Liga officials confirm there have been no infringements within the procedure, the Catalans plan to give their official verdict on the world champion’s arrival.
Meanwhile, no Barcelona representative is expected to appear at La Liga headquarters where the deal is soon to be concluded, only the player’s lawyers.
The release clause of the Frenchman remains to be a key talking point in the negotiations, although Mundo Deportivoclaims that the club has been as confident as never in terms of sealing the deal. The delay could play a strategic role for both Barca and the 28-year-old.
