Griezmann: “My future will be decided before the World Cup”

Antoine Griezmann has given us a very clear idea of when we will know about his future

So, we have a timetable. In less than two weeks, Antoine Griezmann will reveal what his plans for the future are. He scored last night in France’s 3-1 win over Italy along with Barcelona duo Samuel Umtiti and Ousmane Dembele.

He said after that game that “my future will be decided before the World Cup.”

The rumours have cooled and nobody seems to know what is going on which can be read two ways: that Atlético have given up on him staying or that Barcelona have given up on trying to lure him to the Camp Nou.

The reported €23 million a year salary that Barcelona could come nowhere near to matching might have done the trick as they try to lower their wage bill opposed to increasing it.
