Atletico Madrid Antoine Griezmann refuses to confirm future plans

Atletico Madrid Antoine Griezmann refuses to confirm future plans

Griezmann, a target for Manchester United previous year, has been linked with a move to Barcelona after a successful season that saw him score 29 goals in 49 games and pick up the Europa League title.

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.

The France global - who has spent three seasons with Monaco since arriving from Caen - is in Russian Federation for the World Cup.

Griezmann is part of the France squad for this summer's World Cup squad and will be a key part of the team going into the tournament, in which they are one of the favourites.

Griezmann has been heavily linked with Barcelona over the course of the season just gone.

Griezmann has been dedicating a lot of time to his decision, and reports claim that he's turned to French teammates while preparing for the World Cup for advice.

Griezmann's reluctance to reveal his plans could be because he is playing a waiting game to make sure he gets the best deal possible to renew his contract with Atletico.

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.

However, those figures will return to the previous numbers next month.
