Antoine Griezmann announces he will stay at Atletico Madrid in 'The Decision'

Barcelona Transfer News Mohamed Salah could be heading to Barcelona in a stunning swap deal

Griezmann, 27, joined Atletico in July 2014 from Real Sociedad and has finished top scorer with the Madrid side in each season he has been at the club.

Lionel Messi also voiced public support for the move, but the two-goal hero of Atleti's UEFA Europa League final win over Marseille insists he is going nowhere.

Griezmann detailed his struggles with making the life changing decision in the unprecedented documentary, showing phone conversations he had with his sister and agent Maud and his deliberations while visiting his horses.

Explaining the process of his choice throughout the 45-minute film, Griezmann highlighted Atleti's commitment to winning the UEFA Champions League at the Wanda Metropolitano as a key factor.

Jokes were made at Barcelona's expense too after they missed out on another big signing following the failure to buy Marco Verratti last summer. Am I staying? How much they will pay me?

However, Pique's hopes of lining up alongside Griezmann next season were dashed when the prolific forward confirmed that he would remain at Atletico.

"However, in a sporting sense they say that at Barcelona they've not won the Champions League in three years and they want to win it with you and that you'll find it easier to win the Champions League with Barcelona than with Atletico". Here, I would make history. "I will not regret it".

Writing on Twitter, Pique - likely to start in Spain's World Cup opener against Portugal on Friday - thanked Griezmann for letting the documentary team witness his decision.
