Griezmann announces decision about his future

Griezmann La decisión está tomada

Griezmann joined Atletico from Real Sociedad in 2014 and has scored 112 goals in all competitions for the club.

Griezmann looked likely to be swayed by ongoing interest from Barca, with the La Liga champions' president Josep Maria Bartomeu in May revealing he had spoken with the player's agent.

Yet in a painfully extended television special that included footage of Antoine getting a tattoo, playing basketball, showing off his skills in a go-kart, emotional hugs for his mother and suggestions that he has agonised over the decision for several months, Griezmann gave Atletico fans the news they were hoping for.

"I have made a decision to stay", said Griezmann, in a specially aired documentary on Spanish TV station Movistar+.


Explaining the process of his choice throughout the 45-minute film, Griezmann highlighted Atleti's commitment to winning the UEFA Champions League at the Wanda Metropolitano as a key factor. "Since I arrived at the club, we have grown so much, we have won important titles, we have consolidated [among] the great teams in Europe, we have a brand-new stadium and it is an honour that they bet on me and to be able to keep contributing to the growth of this great project". At Barcelona, I would just be one more.

Griezmann ultimately made a decision to do the right thing by his employers by not abandoning them, and since then Manchester United's interest in the France global has cooled.

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.
