Atletico Madrid Antoine Griezmann refuses to confirm future plans”

"But Antoine will remain in Spain, that much is clear, so no worries".

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.

Griezmann is set to announce his intentions before France begin their World Cup campaign against Australia next Saturday.

According to "Canal + France", Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann will announce on Tuesday in a press conference that he will continue with the Rojiblanco, accepting their offer to renew and turning down the chance to move to Barcelona. I have made my choice.

France coach Didier Deschamps prohibits players from undergoing negotiations during tournaments, pushing Griezmann towards making a decision.

But those closest to the 27-year-old are urging him to stay at Atletico, sources said, with one source indicating there is no sign at this time that Griezmann is planning on a move to Barcelona.

Barca's pursuit has angered Atletico, who in December reported them to Federation Internationale de Football Association for making an alleged illegal approach and followed up with a statement in May that said "enough is enough". Jay Asser and the rest of the Sport360 team will be with you throughout the day with the latest news, rumours and insights from the Camp Nou.

Atletico are also working on enticing Griezmann to stay by agreeing a deal in principle on Tuesday to sign his France teammate Thomas Lemar from Monaco.
