Atlético agree deal to sign Thomas Lemar from Monaco

The turning point has been the differences within his family over the final decision, with some keen for him to remain in Madrid and others backing a move to Barcelona.

As Antoine Griezmann considers his future, the FC crew discuss the pros and cons of staying at Atletico and moving to Barcelona.

Some heartwarming footage has emerged of a young Antoine Griezmann meeting his France heroes back in 1998.

France travel to the World Cup on the back of a surprising 1-1 draw with the United States of America in Lyon on Saturday night, but Griezmann reckons there's no need for his teammates to panic, and says their preparation for Australia starts now.

"I am in agreement that to win the Champions League again we need to have the best players - Griezmann is one of them", he told Sport. However, Atletico responded with a counter-offer which will make him the club's best paid player by some distance.

Manchester City striker Jesus also insisted Tite's side are ready for the tournament. We managed to play, involve their team and make another big game.

"I don't know what happened against the U.S., we prepared well".

They claim that Griezmann has chose to join Barcelona.

Meanwhile, Atletico are reportedly close to concluding a deal for Griezmann's France teammate Thomas Lemar, who could move from Monaco for around €60m. I know that many of you were waiting for [his decision], but I will not be revealing it today. "And he is very good!"

The winger will hope to feature for France at this summer's World Cup and build on his 12 caps and three goals for Les Bleus.
