Atletico Madrid ace Antoine Griezmann has declared he's made a decision about his future - but will not announcement it.

After announcing a press conference for Tuesday afternoon, it seemed that he was set to announce where he will play next season, only to opt against it.

Previously, the Frenchman had stated that he wanted things to be resolved before the World Cup, in order to fully concentrate on the tournament with his country.

Lemar is now away on global 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.

The duo are being interviewed at the same time, reeling off names of their favourite players as the presenter says: 'They are so cute we can not refuse them anything'.

Griezmann was close to closing a move to Barça after months of talks once his release clause dropped to 100 million euros on July 1.

The France forward, who scored 29 goals and created 15 others last season, was strongly linked with Manchester United last summer before a contract tying him to Atletico until 2022 was agreed.
