Atletico Madrid agree Griezmann fee with Real Sociedad

Atletico Madrid have struck terms with Real Sociedad over a fee for Antoine Griezmann.

Atletico Madrid have struck terms with Real Sociedad over a fee for Antoine Griezmann.

AS says Griezmann is to move to Atlético after the Spanish champions reached a deal over his transfer with Real Sociedad on Saturday.

The Rojiblancos will meet his €30 million buy-out clause, but will not have to pay CPI or VAT on the deal.

Last summer, the Basque club’s unwillingness to sell Asier Illarramendi meant Real Madrid were held to these extra costs, causing the midfielder’s move to the Santiago Bernabéu to rise to €38.9 million.
