Antoine Griezmann’s future is still a mystery

'AS Monaco and Atletico Madrid announce that they have found an agreement in principle for the transfer of Thomas Lemar, ' a statement read.

The France worldwide, now in Russian Federation with Les Bleus for the World Cup, joined Monaco in 2015 from Caen and made his global debut in November 2016.

Capable of featuring at left wing and as an attacking midfielder, Lemar is widely expected to replace Griezmann, who's been linked with moves to FC Barcelona and Manchester United in recent months.

There was a moment of comedy during Tuesday's France news conference, when an eager Spanish journalist tried his best to get the scoop on Antoine Griezmann's future.

With ongoing speculation linking him with Barcelona, Griezmann had said he would confirm his position before France's World Cup opener against Australia on Saturday.

And thanks to Griezmann's breaking his plan to declare his club future before the World Cup, we seemingly won't have clarity until at least July 1.

The court, however, is letting 16-year-old Maddox essentially decide how much time he wants to spend with Brad because he's older. A judge stated that Jolie must provide Pitt with each child's cell phone number and that he is allowed to call whenever he wants.

France boss Didier Deschamps predicted earlier in the week that Griezmann will not be leaving La Liga, telling the French press that he "will remain in Spain".

While Liverpool and Arsenal have been interested in signing him again this summer, with Chelsea also said to be keen, none of the Premier League clubs have made a concrete offer.

"Today is not the day to talk about my future", he told reporters.

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

Griezmann has indicated he will clarify his position before the tournament in Russian Federation kicks off, which has only fuelled the media's need for answers.
