Atletico Madrid's Antoine Griezmann Makes Big Decision On Future


Atlético Madrid have reached an agreement with Monaco to sign the winger Thomas Lemar for €60m (£52.7m) on the same day Antoine Griezmann refused to commit his future to the Spanish club.

Frank Leboeuf has his say about the future of Antoine Griezmann, saying he might be better suited for a move away from Spain.

Lemar is now away on global duty with France and both clubs will be keen to finalise the transfer before the start of the World Cup, which gets underway on Thursday.

France travel to the World Cup on the back of a surprising 1-1 draw with the US 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.

But he told a news conference: "I apologise - I am really very sorry".

Her fellow Conservative backbencher Stephen Hammond said: "Parliament must be able to have its say in a "no deal" situation". In this scenario, the government retains full control of Brexit's results, but also could mean a tougher exit.

France play their opening game of the tournament on Saturday against Australia.

The 27-year-old is linked with a move to LaLiga champions Barcelona, but he may yet remain at Atletico. "The decision has been taken but it is not the time or the place to talk about it", he said.

Barca's pursuit has angered Atletico, who in December reported them to Federation Internationale de Football Association for making an alleged illegal approach and followed up with a statement in May that said "enough is enough".

Most of the Catalan's squad have commented on rumours that the star could move to the Nou Camp.

Monaco forward Thomas Lemar is set to sign for Atletico Madrid in the coming days.
