Lemar set to join Atletico Madrid from Monaco

Antoine Griezmann has disappointed both Atletico Madrid and Barcelona fans by refusing to publicly announce if he has decided which club he will be playing for next season.

The 22-year-old is now at the World Cup with France, who are due to play their first game of the tournament on Saturday against Australia.

The Catalan giants have been heavily linked with the 27-year-old over the past few months, but it has now been claimed that Los Rojiblancos have done enough to persuade him to stay.

France begin their World Cup campaign against Australia June 16, before facing Peru (June 21) and Denmark (June 26).

"I know there's a lot of expectation, I know many were waiting for it, but today is not the day (to speak about my future)".

Seeing how things have come full circle for Griezmann is just lovely and we're eager to see how he performs on the grandest stage of them all, especially considering how electric he was two years back.

Griezmann is now valued at £200m, but will see his Atleti release clause half in price at the start of next month.

Barca are seeking a commitment from Griezmann before July 1 as his contract's buyout clause will jump from €100m to €200m on that date. However, Atletico responded with a counter-offer which will make him the club's best paid player by some distance. "The decision has been taken but it is not the time or the place to talk about it", he said.
