Antoine Griezmann has completed a quite remarkable deadline day move to Atletico Madrid.

In a move that has come out of nowhere on the final day of the transfer window, Griezmann has returned to the Wanda Metropolitano just two years after leaving for Camp Nou.

The World Cup winner’s huge wages have been one of the reasons for Barça’s spiralling finances, and so to get him off the books, they have allowed Griezmann to go back to Atleti.

Diego Simeone’s side will sign Griezmann on a season-long loan with an obligation to buy for €40m.
