A report claims that Antoine Griezmann’s wages will drop from £20m a year to £15m once he completes his move from Atletico Madrid to Barcelona in July.
Antoine Griezmann will reportedly pocket £15m a year once he completes his move to La Liga rivals Barcelona – a decrease on his current salary at Atletico Madrid.
The France international is expected to finalise a switch to Camp Nou in July once his release clause drops to £105m.
Griezmann revealed in a video statement earlier this week that he intends to leave Atletico, but Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain have ruled themselves out of the running.
French outlet L’Equipe claims that Barcelona are certain to get a deal over the line, though, and the 28-year-old is happy to take a pay cut.
The report suggests that Griezmann currently earns £20m a year in the Spanish capital, but that will decrease by around £5m.
Barca are believed to have offered the former Real Sociedad ace a long-term contract that runs through until 2024.
