Antoine Griezmann committed to Atletico Madrid on Thursday evening, even though Barcelona promised him he'd have more chance of winning the Champions League in Catalonia.

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.

'I have chose to stay, ' he finally proclaimed at the end of a much-criticised mini documentary which aired last night.

He is now with the France squad, preparing for the World Cup, as Les Bleus kick off their campaign against Australia on June 16th.

Griezmann joined Atletico from Real Sociedad in 2014 and has scored 112 goals in all competitions for the club.


He added: "I feel there are things to do with Atletico".

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.

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. 'We always come second or third.

Two days before the final of the Europa League, he said: "Everyone tells me to go, go away, they think I have everything done and I do not tell them". Am I staying? How much they will pay me?

Griezmann had been continually linked with a move to Catalunya, while he kept a tight silence on the subject throughout France's World Cup preparations.
