Antoine Griezmann to get a bumper deal and remain with Atletico Madrid amidst interest from Barcelona

Antoine Griezmann
Antoine Griezmann has 'informed close friends' that he intends to remain at Atletico Madrid - despite being courted by La Liga champions Barcelona.

According to a report in ABC, the French striker has revealed to his inner circle that he will this summer turn down the opportunity to play for Barcelona and stay at Atlético. The player has not made this decision public yet, but as he told the media last week, he will do so before the World Cup.

The reports in Spain continue to say that Griezmann will see his loyalty rewarded with a new contract which would make him one of the highest paid players in Europe. With Griezmann hoping to play a starring role for France in Russia this summer, the forward wants to clarify his future before the tournament gets underway on June 14 and so both Barcelona and Atletico should have confirmation soon enough.
