Antoine Griezmann to end Barcelona-Atletico Madrid transfer saga this week

Last season, Antoine Griezmann was superb for Atletico Madrid after helping the Spanish club to win the 2017/18 Europa League title.

Atletico Madrid and France star Antoine Griezmann is set to make a decision on his future this week.

But Tebas expects both players to remain at their respective clubs heading into next season. "I know there's a lot of expectation, but today is not the day [to speak about my future]", he said reading from a pre-prepared statement. "We are becoming more independent of great players".

Barca's public pursuit of Griezmann has angered Atletico, who reported them to Federation Internationale de Football Association in December for making an illegal approach for the player and followed up with a statement in May telling Barca "enough is enough".

The forward has been expected to confirm his future before the World Cup and said Saturday that was still the case.

The Catalan giants are reportedly awaiting a decision from the France worldwide as to whether he wants to join, having also been offered an improved contract by Atleti.

This (the World Cup ) starts on Saturday, so it will be defined this week.

Barca already have Luis Suarez, Ousmane Dembele and Messi in their forward line, but the latter believes that additional firepower could be required if his side are to end their recent dry spell on the continental stage.

After facing the US on Saturday in Lyon, France are due to fly to their training base near Moscow on Sunday.
