Antoine Griezmann receives heavy criticism for decision video

He was at his home and his parents home while debating the decision.

"You're fed up with all the talk - am I going, am I staying, how much they will pay me, how much they won't pay me", Griezmann said in the trailer.

"You chose to stay in the @Atleti and I hope you go great this season!"

The clip then fades to black.

Having long gone past the point that anybody really cares, Antoine Griezmann has plunged the ongoing masquerade about his future at club level into sheer farce.

The show was reminiscent of highly scrutinized LeBron James's 2010 decision.

Barcelona and Spain defender Gerard Pique responded with a tweet soon after the teaser video, joking that he would be eating some popcorn while he watched.

The France striker had been heavily linked with a €100 million (£88 million) move to Barcelona this summer, having a year ago been a reported target for Manchester United.

Griezmann ultimately chose to do the right thing by his employers by not abandoning them, and since then Manchester United's interest in the France worldwide has cooled.

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.

The La Liga giants agreed a fee with Monaco to sign Griezmann's global team-mate Thomas Lemar. 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. How much they won't pay me.
