Atletico Madrid attacker Griezmann: My future defined this week

Antoine Griezmann intends to clear up his future before the World Cup begins, saying after France's draw with the United States on Saturday that he will reveal all this week.

The turning point has been the differences within his family over the final decision, with some keen for him to remain in Madrid and others backing a move to Barcelona.

"We understand there won't be easy matches at the World Cup for us", the Atletico Madrid star told French sports daily L'Equipe.

The Atletico Madrid forward was expected to announce his summer switch to the Catalan outfit during a press conference on Tuesday. "I know many people were waiting for that but this isn't the right day to do so".

"The World Cup for France starts on Saturday, there is still time".

More seismic activity expected on Hawaii's Big Island
The massive lava flow from Fissure 8 was spotted entering the ocean beyond what was once Kapoho Bay by a satellite on June 7. The lava has spread across an area of 5,000 acres and most of the area is covered in around 10 to 20 feet of lava.

Barca's public pursuit of Griezmann has angered Atletico, who reported them to Federation Internationale de Football Association in December for making an illegal approach for the player and followed up with a statement in May telling Barca "enough is enough".

Well, he couldn't say anything about Barca because of the release clause that reduces the fee they can sign him for doesn't come into effect until July 1.

It is believed that Griezmann will accept a deal that will make him the club's highest-paid player following a massive campaign by manager Diego Simeone and the rest of the staff urging him to stay.

"I can only say that to win the Champions League you have to have the best players".

Now it is Griezmann signing the autographs and carrying the hopes of a nation on his shoulders.
