However, Griezmann, who is now on World Cup duty with France, made the announcement to stay with Atletico on Spanish television outlet Movistar+.
"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.
However, that doesn't mean that Griezmann is going to say he's moving to Barcelona. The broadcast will be shown at 9:15 p.m. It bore an uncanny resemblance to the notorious Lebron James documentary "The Decision", a TV special aired when James announced he was leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers for Miami Heat.
No official announcement will, therefore, be made by the club until the paperwork is signed by both parties.
Griezmann made the announcement just a couple of days before the World Cup in a video released by Movistar.
"I'm so happy. I really appreciate the club's confidence in me", Gimenez said in a statement.
They are doing everything they can to keep Atlético growing and so that they can play the Champions League final at home, they are making an effort to bring top players, I feel like I want to stay in.
