Antoine Griezmann's Atletico Madrid-Barcelona 'Decision' to be revealed in TV special

Barcelona Transfer News Mohamed Salah could be heading to Barcelona in a stunning swap deal

Atletico Madrid star forward Antoine Griezmann, who was heavily speculated to move to La Liga Champions Barcelona in the summer transfer window, made the announcement on Thursday that he will be staying at the club.

"I have chose to stay", said Griezmann, before tweeting: "My fans, my team, MY HOME!".

However, Griezmann, who is now on World Cup duty with France, made the announcement to stay with Atletico on Spanish television outlet Movistar+.

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.

Griezmann announced the news at the end of a TV documentary called "La Decision", broadcast on Spanish channel Movistar.

Barca striker Luis Suarez also gave an interview in which he spoke about Griezmann as if he was a future team mate rather than a potential one.

"I want to win the Champions League, because there is something we need to win things, it seems bad luck after two finals".

You made a decision to stay at Atleti and I hope you have great this season!' Am I staying? How much they will pay me? 'We always come second or third. "This is going to make a difference". "Since I arrived at the club, we have grown so much, we have won important titles, we have consolidated [among] the great teams in Europe, we have a brand-new stadium and it is an honour that they bet on me and to be able to keep contributing to the growth of this great project".

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