Griezmann left Atletico Madrid for Barca after the Spanish giants triggered the French FIFA World Cup winner's €120 million (A$191 million) release clause.

"If you ask the fans, they will tell you they want to win all three titles (La Liga, Champions League and Copa del Rey), and that goes for the players and the leaders, and me too", he said.

Reflecting on his move to Barca, Griezmann told Marca: "I called my father and I started to cry with happiness because I was there, everything was done".

Following his €120m move to Barcelona this summer, Antoine Griezmann has confessed that he can not wait to play and train alongside his new team mate Lionel Messi.

"We made a spectacular duo, for me it's been a pleasure and an honour to play with him, and he's also my friend". "It's hard but we will have to work for it".

Griezmann was the main man at Atletico Madrid, but for the Blaugrana he will probably have to adjust to playing in the shadow of Barcelona's all-time top goalscorer.

Griezmann nearly signed with Barcelona a year ago but instead opted in June 2018 to sign a new five-year deal at the Wanda Metropolitano.

He helped Atletico lift the Europa League in 2018 and won the World Cup with France a year ago. Now he hopes to win the Treble with FC Barcelona.

Shortly after Barca had announced the signing of Griezmann, Atletico complained they and the Frenchman had negotiated the deal before the buy-out price dropped from €200 million at the start of July, adding that they had already "begun appropriate procedures" to defend their "rights and legitimate interests".
