The 27-year-old has been strongly linked with a move to La Liga champions Barcelona, but he may yet remain at Atletico.

As Antoine Griezmann considers his future, the FC crew discuss the pros and cons of staying at Atletico and moving to Barcelona.

Antoine Griezmann intends to clear up his future before the World Cup begins, saying after France's draw with the United States on Saturday that he will reveal all this week.

"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.

Barca's public pursuit of Griezmann has angered Atletico, who reported them to Federation Internationale de Football Association in December for making an illegal approach for the player and followed up with a statement in May telling Barca "enough is enough".

"Cristiano Ronaldo leaving, out of 10, I'm anxious about a five or a four", he said.

Atletico are also reportedly close to signing Monaco winger Thomas Lemar to keep Griezmann happy, following his concerns with the all-round quality of the squad.

"I'm very calm, I'm focused on the World Cup, which is the most important thing now". However, Atletico responded with a counter-offer which will make him the club's best paid player by some distance. It depends on the technical secretary and coach.

Griezmann has scored 112 goals and assisted a further 40 strikes in 209 games for Atletico since his arrival at the Vicente Calderon in 2014.
