Antoine Griezmann has teased his fans by revealing that he will decide on his future before the World Cup.

The Atletico Madrid ace has been in sizzling form for club and country for over a couple of years now, and is one of the most important players for Les Blues in Russia.

He was crucial in the Spanish giants lifting the Europa League title last season, but has been extensively linked with an exit.

The French international has been a long-term transfer target for the newly crowned La Liga champions Barcelona, who are desperate for his signature.

The likes of Manchester United have also been previously linked with a move for the 27-year old, but there has been no real news about any of these interests turning into official offers.

However, when asked about his future and if he has taken a decision about where he wants to play next season, Griezmann was quick to say that it will be resolved before the 15th of June.

“Yes, it will be done before the competition,” Griezmann responded.

With 29 goals to his name last season, he is right up there with the best strikers in Europe at the moment. So it does not come as a surprise that Ernesto Valverde is desperate for his services.

But the forward still has four years left on his current deal with the Madrid giants, and Barcelona will certainly have to pay big to sign him this summer.

Fellow Atletico striker Diego Costa, who wants his teammate to continue his legacy at Atleti, also believes that there might be a doubt in Griezmann’s mind, and that he is happy if it is resolved.

“He is taking a little time to say what is next for him and I think there is perhaps some doubt on his part,” Costa stated in a recent news conference. “He knows that we love him very much and that he is the figurehead here, a very important player.

“If he stays with us, that would be brilliant. If he leaves, we also must be happy because he’s given us a title this season but, in the end, I think he’ll stay.”
