Antoine Griezmann: Barcelona's Gerard Pique teases Atletico Madrid star over announcement

Will he continue as a rojiblanco or leave the club to join Barcelona?

Griezmann said he will let everyone know ahead of France's World Cup opener on Saturday against Australia whether he will accept a new contract offer from Atletico or push through a €100 million move to the Camp Nou ahead of next season.

Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann has vowed to finally put speculation over his future to bed by making an announcement on Thursday evening.

"You're fed up with all the talk - am I going, am I staying, how much they will pay me, how much they won't pay me", Griezmann says in the trailer.

The clip then fades to black.

The idea for Griezmann's announcement appears to be inspired by National Basketball Association star LeBron James' "The Decision" from 2010 when he revealed he will be joining the Miami Heat.

France will be undoubtedly hoping that having one of their main star's futures cleared up will give the national team a boost as they look to live up to their billing as one of the favourites to list the World Cup in Russian Federation.

And one viewer will be possible Barcelona team-mate Pique.

Cadena Cope reported that the footballer will release another video shortly but that two versions have been recorded.

The moment could be Thursday, with Barça hoping to sign the forward while Atletico have done all they can to convince him to remain in the Spanish capital. How much they won't pay me?
