World Cup-winning 30-year-old Griezmann, who scored 133 goals in his first spell with Atletico, has rejoined on a one-year loan deal with an option to extend by another year and an obligation to buy, the club said.

“Welcome back, Griezmann!” Atletico wrote on its website.



Barcelona have been struggling financially and had to allow six-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi to leave for PSG last month.

Barcelona, mired in huge debts, could not keep Messi and spent deadline day selling off some of their talented youngsters.
