Antoine Griezmann confirms his post-World Cup future

Atletico Confirm Lemar Signing As Griezmann Extends Deal Till 2023 Antoine Griezmann confirms he is staying with Atletico in bizarre TV programme devoted to announcement
| 15 June, 2018, 12:01

At bloody last! Antoine Griezmann has finally put everyone out of their misery by announcing that he is staying put with Atletico Madrid.

The Frenchman has been linked with a move away from the Spanish capital for well over 12 months, with a move to Manchester United highly anticipated last summer.

"They told me that it's normal for you to be offered more money where you're the club's main player", she explained on the phone in the documentary in which Griezmann announced his decision, relaying her discussions with the Blaugrana.

The forward is now on worldwide duty with France at the World Cup, and they get their campaign underway against Australia on Saturday.

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


As we reported, the 27-year-old apparently recorded two versions of the video, one with him stating he was leaving for Barcelona and one confirming he was staying.

"I feel there are things to do with Atletico", Griezmann added.

The documentary started with Griezmann explaining that he had a big decision to make and then went on with his sister, who is also his agent, explaining the options.

Griezmann received boos on Atletico's final game of the season, despite leading the club to Europa League glory.

'Atletico are doing everything they can to keep the team growing, it's awesome, they're making a lot of efforts, I cannot stand it, I need to tell people that I want to stay'.
