Antoine Griezmann Ends Transfer Saga And Confirms He Is Going Nowhere

Antoine Griezmann Atletico Madrid Forward To Stay At La Liga Club

Antoine Griezmann Atletico Madrid Forward To Stay At La Liga Club

"I have made a decision to stay", said Griezmann, in a specially aired documentary on Spanish TV station Movistar+.

The forward, 27, said he wanted to clarify his future before France's World Cup opener against Australia on Saturday.

Barcelona's pursuit played out in public for several months before Griezmann said last week that he would share his plans so that they wouldn't overshadow the World Cup.

Having long gone past the point that anybody really cares, Antoine Griezmann has plunged the ongoing masquerade about his future at club level into sheer farce.

Eight years ago, National Basketball Association star James revealed he was leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers in an ESPN live show also titled "The Decision".

Griezmann toyed with a move last summer, flirting with Premier League side Manchester United, before finally signing a new contract with Atletico when they had an appeal against a transfer ban rejected.

"They are making an effort to bring top players".

Earlier Thursday, Griezmann teased the decision with a clip promoting the special. France Football reported Griezmann will sign a new contract in Russian Federation at some point on Thursday.

"I'm so happy. I really appreciate the club's confidence in me", Gimenez said in a statement.

Griezmann announced on Spanish television on Thursday that he would be staying at Atletico next season amid heavy interest from La Liga champions Barcelona.

Multiple people within Griezmann's inner circle told ESPN FC later on Tuesday that they want him to stay at Atletico, and all signs point to him remaining in Madrid.
