The French attacker has been tempting and teasing this news for months but kept his promise when he said the news would come before the World Cup.

One of those players is Griezmann's worldwide team-mate Thomas Lemar, who appears bound for Atletico after the club announced on Tuesday that an agreement has been reached to sign Monaco star.

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, who has been an integral part of Atletico Madrid in the last few seasons, has been on the radar of many big clubs like Manchester United and Barcelona this season.

The concept behind Griezmann the video comes from LeBron James' "The Decision" from 2010, where he revealed publicly that he would join the Miami Heat.

Griezmann detailed his struggles with making the life changing decision in the unprecedented documentary, showing phone conversations he had with his sister and agent Maud and his deliberations while visiting his horses.

"You're fed up with all the talk, am I going?"

Barca director Guillermo Amor then suggested two days later that reports the club had been in contact with Griezmann over a summer transfer were true.

Ultimately, the player chose to remain in the Spanish capital and to try to bring the Champions League to the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano. It was either Barcelona or Atlético Madrid for him next season.

It has been claimed in France that Griezmann will sign a new Atletico contract during the World Cup, bringing the Barca speculation to an end.
