Griezmann is staying in Spain, that much is clear - Deschamps


He says it is similar to when Manchester United had agreed to sign the 27-year-old last summer, before he then chose to remain at Atletico.

Frank Leboeuf has his say about the future of Antoine Griezmann, saying he might be better suited for a move away from Spain.

"The French International is concentrated with his national team in Russian Federation to play the 2018 FIFA World Cup that will take place the next Thursday, 14th of July".

France play their opening game of the tournament on Saturday against Australia.

Griezmann revealed today he had decided where he will be playing next season but claimed it was not the right time or place to announce it.

Monaco have already sold Fabinho to Liverpool this month, and they are set to make further profit with the sale of Lemar.

Antoine Griezmann is believed to be on the verge of announcing his intention to stay at Atletico Madrid this summer, and has called a press conference in order to confirm that he will renew his contract at the Wanda Metropolitano - rejecting the offer from Barcelona in the process.

The France forward, who scored 29 goals and created 15 others last season, was strongly linked with Manchester United last summer before a contract tying him to Atletico until 2022 was agreed.

But last week Lionel Messi said he was sure he would link up well with Griezmann were he to move to the Camp Nou.

Griezmann was pushed by reporters from Mundo Deportivo yesterday about his situation and whether he would be moving to Barcelona.
