Antoine Griezmann to make shock announcement imminently

Just as it looked as if this would prove to be a key day to find out what Antoine Griezmann's future holds, everyone thought he would announce his decision today, it was in reality a press conference which he was obligated to attend.

However, the France worldwide refused to go into details about that decision or reveal if he would be exiting Madrid in the current transfer window.

Barcelona had hoped to sign the 27-year-old on July 1, when his release clause drops to €100 million, but Atletico have offered him an improved contract worth a reported €23m a year.

Barca already have Luis Suarez, Ousmane Dembele and Messi in their forward line, but the latter believes that additional firepower could be required if his side are to end their recent dry spell on the continental stage.

The media gathered at France's World Cup base in Russian Federation to attend a press conference, at which Griezmann would be speaking.

All eyes were on the French press conference in Russian Federation this Tuesday, in which Antoine Griezmann was expected by all in the footballing media to clarify his future.

"I am in agreement that to win the Champions League again we need to have the best players - Griezmann is one of them", he told Sport. I have made my choice. "It's not the time or the place".

One journalist was so desperate to get a comment from Griezmann, he used Google translate to ask the forward about his future.

He was expected to announce where he would be playing his football next season during a press conference organised by the France national team ahead of the World Cup.
