Messi names the only player that can help Barcelona win the Champions League next season

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

Multiple people within Antoine Griezmann's inner circle say they want him to stay at Atletico Madrid rather than join Barcelona next season, sources close to the forward told ESPN FC's Julien Laurens.

"Atletico de Madrid and AS Monaco have achieved a preliminary agreement over the transfer of Thomas Lemar to our club", for the definitive transfer", the Spanish club said of the 22-year old.

France begin their World Cup campaign against Australia June 16, before facing Peru (June 21) and Denmark (June 26).

"I am very sorry, I know you have all been waiting but I will not give my decision today".

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

Seeing how things have come full circle for Griezmann is just attractive 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.

"There's no more pressure on me, I am relaxed, focused on the World Cup".

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.

Griezmann has been dedicating a lot of time to his decision, and reports claim that he's turned to French teammates while preparing for the World Cup for advice.
