Details of his contract at the Camp Nou have emerged in the days following the completion of a loan move which took the French international back to Atletico Madrid.
SPORT have published the details of his contract in their Saturday edition, suggesting that his transfer fee was 120 million euros.
Furthermore, the report stated that his salary during the five seasons he was contracted to the club would be a total of 95 million euros before taxes.
When divided between five years, this would see 17 million euros being the based annual salary with that increasing year by year until he reached the final season and took home 21 million euros.
SPORT said that in the documents there were many bonus payments that were fixed if Griezmann played a certain number of matches or if he won certain trophies, all clauses that would considerably increase his salary.
