Griezmann: "I've made a decision, but today isn't the day to talk..."

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

Barcelona forward Lionel Messi admits that signing Antoine Griezmann from rivals Atletico Madrid this summer would be a "brilliant" coup for his side.

And Griezmann confirmed after France's final warm-up match on Saturday that a decision will be made over the coming days.

Barca's pursuit has angered Atletico, who in December reported them to Federation Internationale de Football Association for making an alleged illegal approach and followed up with a statement in May that said "enough is enough".

"It's good that you're taking an interest", Griezmann said after France's 1-1 friendly draw with the United States. "I know there's a lot of expectation, but today is not the day [to speak about my future]", he said reading from a pre-prepared statement.

Catalunya Radio reported that Barca remain confident of signing Griezmann as coach Ernesto Valverde was reassured by the club's hierarchy over a meal last week that the forward would be part of his squad next season.

According to French outlet Canal+, Griezmann has made a decision to stay with Atletico and sign a new deal which would make him the highest paid player in their history.
