Griezmann hails superfan who posted his image on Twitter for 655 DAYS IN A ROW before Barca move
Twitter user @ryghtan vowed back in September of 2017 to post an image of the French star on his social media account every day until Griezmann made the switch from Atletico Madrid to Barcelona.
He made good on his promise, and 655 days later the saga involving the attacking ace’s move to the Catalans finally came to a close when he signed for a reported €120 million (US$1135 million).
