Antoine Griezmann (Macon, France, 1991) passed the medical examination yesterday and this afternoon signed a contract, in the Vicente Calderón, for six seasons with our Club.
The 23-year-old French international, came to Real Sociedad at the age of 13 and has gone through all its training categories up to the first team. Griezmann has demonstrated his versatility by playing as a forward, a midfielder, and even as a fullback. Last season, he scored 20 goals in 50 games with the Basque team.
Last February, he made his debut with the French National Team and this summer he’s played the Brazil World Cup with them.
José Luis Pérez Caminero was "very happy to settle the agreement for his arrival. Antoine was a priority for us and fortunately, we’ve made it happen. He’s one of our League’s most important players as demonstrated in Real Sociedad. He easily manages both on the sidelines and the midfield thanks to his speed, he scores, has a great shot and does great assists. His arrival is great news for our Club".
