Griezmann: My future will be announced this week



Linked to Barcelona ahead of the World Cup, Antoine Griezmann said he was close to announcing his future.

Atlético Madrid and France star Antoine Griezmann has confirmed that he will announce his future in the coming days.

Griezmann, 27, continues to be linked with a move to LaLiga champions Barcelona after another fine season at Atlético.

The forward has been expected to confirm his future before the World Cup and said on Saturday that was still the case.

"I think we will find out this week", says star after France draw

"It's good that you're taking an interest," Griezmann said after France's 1-1 friendly draw with the United States. "There's a week to go. I think we will find out this week."

Griezmann is contracted at Atlético - the club he joined in 2014 - until 2022, but Barcelona are reportedly prepared to trigger his 100-million-euro release clause.
