Multiple people within Antoine Griezmann's inner circle say they want him to stay at Atletico Madrid rather than join Barcelona next season, sources close to the forward told ESPN FC's Julien Laurens. According to Canal + France (via Sport), Griezmann has called a press conference for Tuesday afternoon, and will announce that he is set to remain in the Spanish capital next season.

For the first time in his career, the former Real Sociedad man will lead the Les Bleus' line for the first time in Russian Federation, having been a bit-part player back in 2014. Griezmann, however, decided it wasn't the time to talk about his decision but he did at least admit that a decision has been made.
