Antoine Griezmann chooses Atletico Madrid stay over Barcelona transfer

Antoine Griezmann chooses Atletico Madrid stay over Barcelona transfer

A video filmed by Griezmann at his home in Madrid, posted on Twitter by Movistar, teased the 27-year-old's decision.

"You chose to stay at Atleti and I hope you go great this season!" "But the truth is what I am going to say now". Spanish time (3:15 p.m. ET).

Griezmann has remained coy about his future in recent weeks, but now, in a sensational TV programme in Spain named 'La Decision', he has announced that he will be staying at the Wanda Metropolitano beyond this summer.

And yet, he opted to reveal his decision in a 45-minute TV special - in a stunt reminiscent of LeBron James' identically titled ESPN special in 2010, when the National Basketball Association star announced he was leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Miami Heat.

Following more intense speculation in January, Barca issued a statement denying Griezmann's "supposed move" to Camp Nou in a late bid to maintain a cordial relationship with Atletico.

The Vivo Nex Looks Like the Future of the Smartphone
Taking this consideration, it is believed that three variants of the phone could be dubbed as Vivo NEX , NEX S , and the NEX A . The last two variants - NEX S and NEX A are likely to be toned-down versions that could be powered by Snapdragon 710 chipset.

Griezmann toyed with a move last summer, flirting with Premier League side Manchester United, before finally signing a new contract with Atletico when they had an appeal against a transfer ban rejected.

The documentary started with Griezmann explaining that he had a big decision to make and then went on with his sister, who is also his agent, explaining the options.

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

Manchester United exhausted and failed to land him last year but the forward ended up signing a one-year contact extension with Atletico, tying him to the club until 2022. "Since I arrived at the club, we have grown so much, we have won important titles, we have consolidated [among] the great teams in Europe, we have a brand-new stadium and it is an honour that they bet on me and to be able to keep contributing to the growth of this great project".
