France star Lemar set for Atletico Madrid move

France star Lemar set for Atletico Madrid move

"Over the next days, both clubs will work to close the agreement", the Madrid club said of the attacking midfielder usually deployed on the left.

The 22-year-old is now at the World Cup with France, who are due to play their first game of the tournament on Saturday against Australia.

Griezmann has a choice over whether he will remain with Atletico Madrid, who are desperate to keep him, or make the switch to La Liga rivals Barcelona in a €100m transfer.

Aged seven, and wearing the No 7 on his back, he is seen with a friend excitedly running around getting autographs from the World Cup-winning squad.

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

However, Griezmann disappointed plenty of football fans by saying: "I am very sorry, but today I am not going to give my decision".

"I know that many of you were waiting for that".

Barcelona are reportedly ready to trigger Griezmann's €100million release clause.

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.

But according to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, there is a reason why Griezmann, Barcelona and Atletico have not announced the deal yet.

Griezmann gave no more indication on his plans and any time that the subject of his future was put forward by a journalist in attendance, the French FA press officer shut it down, telling the player not to answer.
