Griezmann: My Future Will Be Announced Next Week

As Antoine Griezmann considers his future, the FC crew discuss the pros and cons of staying at Atletico and moving to Barcelona.

Didier Deshamps left many top stars out of his World Cup squad but kept faith with Lemar, who scored recently for France in a win over Colombia and bagged a brace a year ago against the Dutch.

France travel to the World Cup on the back of a surprising 1-1 draw with the United States of America in Lyon on Saturday night, but Griezmann reckons there's no need for his teammates to panic, and says their preparation for Australia starts now.

But Griezmann has remained tight-lipped on his decision, refusing to reveal his future destination just yet.

However, Griezmann disappointed plenty of football fans by saying: "I am very sorry, but today I am not going to give my decision".

And, speaking to TF1's Telefoot, Griezmann said the announcement will be made this week because France's opener is against Australia on June 16.


"It's not the time or the place".

He made his France debut in 2016 and has scored three goals in 12 worldwide games.

Griezmann, 27, is the subject of a tug-of-war between Barcelona and his current club, Atletico Madrid.

Most of the Catalan's squad have commented on rumours that the star could move to the Nou Camp.

According to reports emanating from France, AS Monaco's Thomas Lemar is set to depart the Ligue 1 club in order to join Atletico Madrid.
