Barcelona have admitted they had to take a loan, to pay for the signing of Antoine Griezmann.

Last week, the club deposited €120m at the offices of the Spanish League, to release Griezmann from his contract.

On Sunday when he was presented, the club’s president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, explained how they raised the money to pay the sum up front, as was necessary to activate the buy-out clause.

“The club has taken out a six-month unsecured loan for €35m and the remaining €85m [is covered by] anticipating payments yet to be received,” Bartomeu said.
