Antoine Griezmann could be a FC Barcelona player this weekend

Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann could complete a move to FC Barcelona as early as this weekend, according to a report in Marca this weekend.

The French international confirmed this week via a social media video, that he would be leaving the club at the end of the season, and the Camp Nou is widely expected to be his destination.

He was set to sign for the Catalan side last summer, but in the end he opted to remain at the Wanda Metropolitano, however after a disappointing La Liga and Champions League campaign he has performed a u-turn.

According to the report, Griezmann's representative Sevan Karian will meet with FC Barcelona directors this weekend, in a bid to tie up the deal before Griezmann leaves for international duty with France. 

Despite Karian linking the former Real Sociedad man to Paris Saint Germain last week, Thomas Tuchel has since confirmed that he will be focusing on defensive reinforcements over the summer.

Griezmann's release clause is €120m, after signing a new contract at the start of the season, with a 25% share of any deal going to the Anoeta.
