Griezmann: My Future Will Be Announced Next Week

Lemar was strongly linked with both Liverpool and Arsenal last season but is now set for a move to the Wanda Metropolitano.

Reports Saturday suggested France coach Didier Deschamps had told Griezmann and Monaco midfielder Thomas Lemar to clarify their futures by the end of the week.

'The two clubs will continue to work in the coming days in order to find a definitive agreement'.

FC Barcelona transfer target Antoine Griezmann has reportedly made a massive decision regarding his future, amid rumours the Atletico Madrid man could soon team up with superstar Lionel Messi at the Camp Nou.

Lemar is now away on worldwide duty with France and both clubs will be keen to finalise the transfer before the start of the World Cup, which gets underway on Thursday.

However, at a national team press conference in Russian Federation, the 27-year-old repeatedly laughed off questions regarding a potential move before claiming he has made up his mind where he will be playing next season.

Griezmann's intention is to make an announcement where he will explain his decision and the motives behind it. The current intention at Barcelona to negotiate directly with Atletico and pay more than the player's buyout clause.

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

Lemar broke through in the 2016-17 campaign, scoring 14 goals and adding 17 assists as Monaco won Ligue 1 and reached the Champions League semi-finals.
