Griezmann made the announcement during a documentary aired on Thursday, with the film produced by Pique's investment company Kosmos.

According to Spanish radio station Partidazo de COPE, the French forward has recorded two separate video messages - one in which he confirms he's staying put at Atletico Madrid, the other in which he confirms he's leaving for Barcelona - and intends on releasing the relevant clip as and when his mind is made up.

Am I staying? How much they will pay me?

"I spoke to him before the holidays and his goal is to play another great season with us and then go to a great team to improve".

The show was reminiscent of highly scrutinized LeBron James's 2010 decision. France Football reported Griezmann will sign a new contract in Russian Federation at some point on Thursday.


The La Liga giants agreed a fee with Monaco to sign Griezmann's global team-mate Thomas Lemar.

The France striker had been heavily linked with a €100 million (£88 million) move to Barcelona this summer, having previous year been a reported target for Manchester United.

Eventually, Atletico snapped. A furious statement released by the club said "enough is enough" and condemned Barca's "inappropriate conduct" in their attempts to sign Griezmann.

In another signal of their intent to compete for the title in La Liga next season, Atletico signed defender Jose Maria Gimenez, linked recently with Real Madrid and Manchester United, to a contract tying him to the club through 2022-23.

Griezmann called a press conference Tuesday, which many thought would be the end of his months-long decision.
