Griezmann, 27, is the subject of a tug-of-war between Barcelona and his current club, Atletico Madrid.

Ronaldo cast doubt over his future at Madrid after their third consecutive Champions League success last month.

Atletico Madrid attacker Antoine Griezmann has assured fans he will make a decision over his future before the World Cup kicks off. I know that many of you were waiting for [my decision], but I will not be revealing it today. "We are becoming more independent of great players".

This (the World Cup ) starts on Saturday, so it will be defined this week.

Argentina superstar Lionel Messi has admitted that Frenchman Antoine Griezmann will be of great advantage for Barcelona if the club signs him this summer.

Atletico are also reportedly close to signing Monaco winger Thomas Lemar to keep Griezmann happy, following his concerns with the all-round quality of the squad.

Seeing how things have come full circle for Griezmann is just handsome and we're eager to see how he performs on the grandest stage of them all, especially considering how electric he was two years back. If the club sign him, brilliant.

The Argentina talisman said: "I am in agreement that to win the Champions League again we need to have the best players".

"I don't know if he's the priority". And he is very good, " Messi was quoted by Goal to have told Sport.

The Nou Camp outfit have not won the competition since 2015, where they beat Juventus 3-1.
