The signing of Antoine Griezmann by FC Barcelona could be the transfer of the summer, with the World Cup winner joining the La Liga champions from Atletico Madrid.
However, for all of the hype and all of the promise that the Frenchman has in a Barca shirt, his first day was not what you’d expect. Taking part in a rondo, the new signing was nutmegged during his first training session… twice.

Griezmann seemed to see the funny side and so did his new teammates. But with Luis Suarez and Leo Messi set to return soon, the Frenchman might want to keep his legs closed around those two nutmeg artists. The former Real Sociedad man, nutmegs aside, will be sure to bolster an already strong selection of attacking talent at FC Barcelona though this season.
