Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann will take a big pay cut to complete his move to Spanish champions Barcelona this summer.

This is according to the report from SoccerLink which claimed that French World Cup winner will move to Barcelona this summer but he must take a salary slash for the move to happen.

Antoine Griezmann has already told the Atletico Madrid officials that he wants to leave the club this summer after five years with the Spanish capital outfit.

He has been linked with the likes of French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) and Premier League giants Manchester United apart from Barcelona.

The Catalan giants were overwhelming favourites for Antoine Griezmann only for them to be usurp by PSG in recent days but it seems like they are back in pole position for the French forward if the report from SoccerLink is anything to go by.

It was revealed that Antoine Griezmann will earn €17m on a yearly basis at Barcelona which is down by €6m from the salary he earns as an Atletico Madrid player.

His salary at Atletico Madrid is €23m per year.

Antoine Griezmann joined Atletico Madrid from fellow Spanish club Real Sociedad in the summer of 2014.
