Antoine Griezmann says he has made a decision on his future but refused to clarify where he will play next season when he spoke to reporters at France's World Cup camp in Russian Federation on Tuesday.
Earlier on Tuesday, Griezmann said he has made a decision on his future but refused to clarify where he will play next season when speaking to reporters at France's World Cup camp in Russian Federation.
"Over the next days, both clubs will work to close the agreement for the definitive transfer", Atletico said.
Barcelona had hoped to sign the 27-year-old on July 1, when his release clause drops to €100 million, but Atletico have offered him an improved contract worth a reported €23m a year.
Deschamps prohibits players from undergoing negotiations during tournaments, which provides a further reason to believe that Griezmann's future will be public knowledge before France begin the competition.
There appears to be no logical reason behind Griezmann delaying the announcement of a new deal, if he is to stay at Atletico, and it would now be more surprising if the forward doesn't switch clubs this summer.
"Today is not the day to talk about my future", he said at a press conference on Tuesday.
Griezmann revealed today he had decided where he will be playing next season but claimed it was not the right time or place to announce it.
