When Antoine Griezmann conducted a press conference at the France national team training camp on Tuesday, everyone expected him to reveal his future.

Griezmann is now valued at £200m, but will see his Atleti release clause half in price at the start of next month.

The 27-year-old has been strongly linked with a move to La Liga champions Barcelona, but he may yet remain at Atletico.

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". I don't know if he's the priority.

According to this leak, it will be available on June 12, 2018, the same day as the E3 2018 Nintendo Direct. The game will be available to download at 10 a.m.

Seeing how things have come full circle for Griezmann is just lovely and we're eager to see how he performs on the grandest stage of them all, especially considering how electric he was two years back.

If the Catalan club signed him now, it would cost them €200 million but if they wait until the turn of the month, it will be halved to €100 million.

Monaco today confirmed that they have agreed a deal in principle with Atlético Madrid for the sale of Thomas Lemar. It depends on the technical secretary and coach. "The decision is complicated, I am calm", he said. "And he is very good!"

He made his France debut in 2016 and has scored three goals in 12 worldwide games.
