After getting back to Spain in order to be presented as the new FC Barcelona transfer, Antoine Griezmann vowed to fight for all the trophies.

We all knew that Antoine Griezmann’s ambition was to someday play at FC Barcelona, he just came back to Spain in order to sign his new contract.

Upon arrival, the Frenchman spoke to Barça TV about his new challenge and what he expects to accomplish at the club.

It is evident that this player’s main objective is to win all the titles with the Catalan club, something he wasn’t able to accomplish at Atletico Madrid.

“I am very happy, I come here filled with hope and eager to work with my teammates,” said Griezmann.

“I have new challenges here, new objectives, and I hope I can reach them in the best possible manner.”

“My goal is to win it all, Copa, Liga, and Champions. I already spoke to Samuel Umtiti and Ousmane Dembele, they are the ones I have a close friendship with and I want to have a great time with them.”

“I wanted to come here for a long time, my family will always follow me. There are times when you have to make a hard decision.”

“For me, playing alongside Messi is a joy. I want to know what it’s like to train every day at this club.”

“This is a great place to be and I want to work for my teammates and the manager. I have fun outside and inside of the pitch. I hope I can bring a lot of joy to the fans and we can all enjoy together.”

Antoine Griezmann’s itinerary.

FC Barcelona wasn’t expecting Antoine Griezmann to return to the country until Sunday, but the player couldn’t wait to come back and present himself as the new transfer.

The presentation is still scheduled for Monday and Griezmann will still pass the medical tests on Sunday.

Nobody expected him to sign his new contract until tomorrow, but his early arrival sped up that process and it was done on Saturday.

Griezmann was spending time with his family in Ibiza, which is still technically Spain. There were images of the French player on vacation and only waiting for the final say on his transfer from Atletico Madrid.

The player was expecting the announcement in order to make the trip to Barcelona. It’s safe to say that Antoine Griezmann is no longer a liked figure in the city of Madrid, everybody hates him now after the way he left Atletico.

Even though some fans don’t hold grudges against him, there are many supporters who didn’t like the way he concealed things from the Colchoneros.

If Griezmann wanted to play at Barcelona all this time, he should’ve made his decision last summer before he took more than €20 million from Atletico Madrid.

The Colchoneros’ fans are already covering Antoine Griezmann’s plaque outside of the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium, they truly hate what he did.

The moment he steps back into his old house, Griezmann can expect a loud jeer from the crowd who doesn’t like him.

We are pretty much certain that Antoine doesn’t really care about the bad impression he left at Atletico Madrid, all he cares about is Barcelona now.

We will see Griezmann finally training with his new teammates on Monday, he is also waiting for a resolution on the dispute between the two clubs after the way he left.

Atletico Madrid is demanding another €80 million for the player, they consider there was foul play during the negotiation.

It’s safe to say that FC Barcelona and Atletico Madrid’s relationship is completely broken by now, the Catalan club made sure of that.

Only time will tell if Barcelona’s risky move will pay off, Griezmann not delivering results would be extremely detrimental to Barcelona.

Antoine can finally get to play alongside one of his biggest inspirations and idols, Lionel Andres Messi Cuccitini.

Also, playing with Suarez is very motivating too because Luis is from Uruguay, which is one of Griezmann’s favorite countries.
