Atletico Madrid Antoine Griezmann refuses to confirm future plans

Atletico Madrid Antoine Griezmann refuses to confirm future plans

Atletico said in a statement on their official website: "Atletico de Madrid and AS Monaco have achieved a preliminary agreement over the transfer of Thomas Lemar to our club".

"The French International is concentrated with his national team in Russian Federation to play the 2018 FIFA World Cup that will take place the next Thursday, 14th of July".

But after having previously stated that he would announce his decision before France's opening World Cup game on Saturday, Griezmann chose to keep shtum.

Global markets higher ahead of Trump-Kim meeting
A theory that Justin Trudeau has fake eyebrows took over the Internet on Monday. He did him a favour and he was even willing to sign that socialist communique.


Lemar is a known target of Liverpool and Arsenal, but the forward is set to join the La Liga side after the club announced a deal had been agreed on their Twitter account.

'Over the next days, both clubs will work to close the agreement for the definitive transfer'.

He says it is similar to when Manchester United had agreed to sign the 27-year-old last summer, before he then chose to remain at Atletico.

Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un's historic summit
Trump's team claims those warnings can be credited for new rounds of global sanctions and, ultimately, Tuesday's summit. On Tuesday morning, Pompeo fed the mounting anticipation of diplomatic breakthrough, saying: "We're ready for today".


After a great deal of uncertainty surrounding Lemar's next club, reports have emerged suggesting the French winger will play his football at the Wanda Metropolitano next season, ostensibly linking up with national teammate Antoine Griezmann as Los Rojiblancos look to challenge the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid for Spain's top honours.

Griezmann said earlier on Tuesday that he had made up his decision on his future but would not reveal his plans, though sources have since said all signs point to him returning to Atletico.

France coach Didier Deschamps prohibits players from undergoing negotiations during tournaments, pushing Griezmann towards making a decision.
