(CNN) "I've made the decision to leave." The words that Atletico Madrid fans have both feared and, in truth, expected for some time. It is a statement from Antoine Griezmann, the club's star player, that has opened the door for a $139.5 million move to Barcelona. The huge figure was placed in the five-year contract extension signed by Griezmann in June 2018. Griezmann's former club, Real Sociedad, will receive around $28 million from the transfer after placing a 20% sell-on fee in his contract, reports Marca.
