BARCELONA (Reuters) - Spanish champions Barcelona announced the signing of striker Antoine Griezmann on Friday for 120 million euros (£107 million) from a fuming Atletico Madrid, who said the Catalan club had not paid enough to trigger the player's release clause.

France forward Griezmann, 28, rejected a move to Barcelona last year but announced in May that he was leaving Atletico, where he has spent the last five seasons since signing from Real Sociedad in 2014.
