French star Antoine Griezmann has finally revealed he will snub a move to LaLiga champions FC Barcelona and remain with Atletico Madrid.

Griezmann, who signed a new deal at the start of the season, had been linked with the likes of Manchester United and FC Barcelona.

"I cannot stand it anymore, I need to tell people that I want to stay", he told French TV channel Movistar, who spent time with him in a Reality TV-like setting which did conjure memories of National Basketball Association superstar Lebron James" "The Decision' in which he revealed he was leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers to join the Miami Heat.

He is now with the France squad, preparing for the World Cup, as Les Bleus kick off their campaign against Australia on June 16th.

Griezmann has netted 112 goals for Atletico during his four years at the club, but Barcelona have been persistent in their hunt, despite being reported to Federation Internationale de Football Association over an alleged illegal approach last December.

"Many calls come to my sister [and representative Maud Griezmann], but now [April 20] I'm not sure".

Trump throws G-7 into disarray with tweets after he leaves
Going into the summit, Mr Trump was at odds with other leaders on issues such as trade, Iran and climate change. We're not looking to play games", he said.

But that did not stop the 27-year-old being part of a television programme, entitled "The Decision" to give updates over his future.

Do you think Griezmann made the right decision?

"Your choice is to stay at Atletico with a much higher salary than at Barcelona but with the risk of not winning the Champions League or to go to Barcelona, where they'll pay less than at Atletico in the next years".

"What makes me wonder is that if they bring players can win the Champions here and walk into the club's history".

His "decision" behind him, Griezmann can now focus on the World Cup with France.
