Antoine Griezmann has declared “I want to win it all” after joining Barcelona.
The Frenchman has targeted a trophy haul following his move to the Catalan club from Atletico Madrid.
Barca, who won the Spanish league title last season, lost the Copa del Rey final to Valencia and squandered a 3-0 lead following the first leg of their Champions League semi-final against Liverpool.
Griezmann wants to change that as he prepares for his first season at the Camp Nou.
“I want to win it all. La Liga, Copa del Rey, Champions League. They are both the club’s and my goals. I wish I can achieve it here,” said the 28-year-old.
Barcelona on Friday triggered the €120 million release clause to sign France international Antoine Griezmann from La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid.
Griezmann has signed a five-year contract at the club, which will run until June 20 2024.
The 28-year-old’s new deal comes with a release clause of €800 million.
After announcing the signing, the Catalans released the above video on their social media platforms with the caption “Life is all about second chances.”
It’s thought that the video could be an attempt to get the Barcelona fans on his side after his theatrics last summer when he released a documentary to announce his decision to stay at Atletico Madrid and angered Blaugrana supporters in the process.
Former Barcelona midfielder Xavi believes the signing of Neymar is very complicated and unlikely to materialise.
Ever since news of the Brazilian’s uneasiness at Paris Saint-Germain surfaced, speculation of a possible return to the Catalan side has risen.
Before the €222 million move to PSG, Neymar had already showed what he could do at Barcelona, playing a pivotal role in their second treble. Xavi believes he has a lot to offer if a potential return comes to fruition. The Spaniard did admit that signing the Brazilian could be very complicated though.
“He would be an incredible signing,” Xavi told Movistar, according to Goal.
“But I see it as being difficult, honestly. I think it’s very difficult.
“We have seen so many things that I thought I’d never see though, such as PSG paying €222 million, so we’ll have to wait.
“There’s no doubt that he’s one of the best players in the world, but let’s see what Barcelona do.”
