Griezmann: Australia won't be easy

However, at a press conference in Russian Federation on Tuesday, 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.

Lemar is now on global duty with France at the World Cup, and will link up with his new team-mates after the tournament once the deal is officially confirmed.

A statement on Atletico's website confirmed the clubs will work over the next few days to complete the transfer.

Multiple people within Antoine Griezmann's inner circle say they want him to stay at Atletico Madrid rather than join Barcelona next season, sources close to the forward told ESPN FC's Julien Laurens. I know that many of you were waiting for [his decision], but I will not be revealing it today.

"I'm very calm, I'm focused on the World Cup, which is the most important thing now". But I'm not going to speak about it today.

But according to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, there is a reason why Griezmann, Barcelona and Atletico have not announced the deal yet.

The 18-year-old was a rumoured target of Tottenham, but the Catalan giants have ensured they'll hold on to one of their bright prospects for the coming years.

Teenage sensation Riqui Puig has inked a new deal with Barcelona, which has a €100million release clause to keep with with the club until 2021.

La Liga president Javier Tebas has declared he expects Antoine Griezmann to stay put this summer.
