Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo has warned Barcelona again that they could face consequences if Antoine Griezmann joins the club this summer.

The Frenchman has already announced he will leave the club, and Atletico have splashed out €126 million to bring in Joao Felix from Benfica as his replacement.

Atletico CEO Gil Marin has previously said he’s known since March that Griezmann will play for Barcelona, and Cerezo reckons if that’s the case there could be trouble for the Spanish giants.

“The truth is that I do not know but if, as you say, he [Griezmann] has signed, then there will be consequences.

”I doesn’t appear normal to me but I don’t know if he signed or not, and I don’t know if he’s going to Barcelona or not. Let’s wait a few days, and I guess we’ll know.”

Barcelona are expected to land Griezmann now his release clause has dropped to €120m, and reports have claimed he could be presented on July 11th.
