Griezmann announces decision about his future

Atletico's top scorer each of the past three seasons, Griezmann, 27, wanted to end the speculation regarding his future before his France side faces Australia in its World Cup opener on Saturday.

'Atletico are doing everything they can to keep the team growing; it's unbelievable, they're making a lot of efforts, I cannot stand it, I need to tell people that I want to stay.' Griezmann added. He also posted a video on Twitter with the captain, "My fans, my team, my home".

Barcelona's pursuit played out in public for several months before Griezmann said last week that he would share his plans so that they wouldn't overshadow the World Cup.

Griezmann has been a long-term target for Atletico's La Liga rivals Barcelona and the French worldwide was strongly tipped to make the move to the Nou Camp this summer.

Links with Barca date to last summer, too, when they first realised Neymar was leaving for Paris Saint-Germain. I'm sure there are plenty of players at clubs below the elite that feel this way'.

However, stories continued to leak and Griezmann helped feed the frenzy.

In response, Pique, whose Kosmos investment group created the documentary, tweeted in response: 'Another way to see the life of a football player and how to make the most important decision of his career.

Atletico said in a statement on their official website on Tuesday: "Atletico de Madrid and AS Monaco have achieved a preliminary agreement over the transfer of Thomas Lemar to our club".

He missed out on winning the Champions League in 2016, failing to score a penalty in the 1-1 draw in the final which Real Madrid won following a shootout, but lifted a first major trophy with Atletico in the Europa League final.
