On 28 July 2014, Griezmann transferred to Atlético Madrid from Real Sociedad for a fee of 30 million Euros. He scored his first goal for the club in a game against Olympiacos F.C.. They lost 3-2.

Griezmann scored twice in the 2018 UEFA Europa League Final against Olympique de Marseille. Atletico won 3-0. Barcelona offered him a contract in June 2018, but he declined the offer and stayed at Atletico for one more year.

Barcelona

On 12 July 2019, Griezmann signed to FC Barcelona after they bought his 120 million euro buy-out clause. The transfer created a lot of controversy because experts claim Barcelona payed 80 million euros less than the actual release clause of 200 million.
