Antoine Griezmann was snatched up and saw his transfer validated at more than 1 a.m. on Wednesday 1 September.

The documents were sent at the last moment, the Cadena Ser even evoking a reception of the first papers at 11.59 p.m., but this enabled us to gain a stay and then complete them for an hour. As a result, Saul Niguez was able to join Chelsea, which allowed Antoine Griezmann to join Atlético de Madrid. Then it was Luuk De Jong who signed for FC Barcelona to replace the Frenchman. A real administrative battle which seems in any case to have suited all the clubs involved. Especially an Antoine Griezmann who will try to relaunch his career in the club that blew him up, with this one-year loan which would be renewable for a second season. La Liga did not confirm these transfers and validate the transactions until more than an hour in the morning, with Barcelona leaders visibly very relieved to have finally removed their French player.
