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

France worldwide Antoine Griezmann has confirmed he will remain with Atletico Madrid next season.

Manchester United exhausted and failed to land him last year but the forward ended up signing a one-year contact extension with Atletico, tying him to the club until 2022.

In a recorded video posted on earlier on Thursday social media, Griezmann said of the announcement that he is simply wanting to reveal the truth.

The forward's attentions will now switch to France's World Cup campaign, with the striker set to spearhead Didier Deschamps' attack in Russian Federation.

The 27-year-old, who now has a €100m release clause, has had persistent speculation over a potential move away from the Wanda Metropolitano with Barcelona thought to be the main interested party.

Ronaldo can't block Neymar move, says Marcelo
Madrid need to be able to replace Ronaldo at some stage, and they can't allow him to stand in the way of that. And Real Madrid's doors are always open for Neymar .

"I feel there are things to do with Atletico", Griezmann added. How much they won't pay me.

He missed out on winning the Champions League in 2016, failing to score a penalty in the 1-1 draw in the final which Real Madrid won following a shootout, but lifted a first major trophy with Atletico in the Europa League final.

However, Griezmann - whose brace against Marseille secured a Europa League triumph for Diego Simeone's side in May - has elected to stay put, committing his future to Atleti as they look to secure a Champions League title. "This is going to make a difference".

Despite most eyes being on the World Cup, Griezmann's announcement came at a lull after the opening game, but fans were frustrated with the drawn-out announcement.
