Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann has admitted that he has already made a final decision on his future but refused to mention his destination next season.
The former Manchester United target has been strongly linked with Barcelona this summer as superstar Lionel Messi has also backed him to be successful at the Camp Nou.
Last weekend, the France international revealed that he would confirm his future before this summer’s World Cup campaign in Russia.
However, speaking to reporters at France’s camp in Russia on Tuesday, the 27-year-old has refused to clarify his next club after the World Cup.
But he told a news conference: “I apologise — I am really very sorry. I know that many of you were waiting for my decision, but I will not be revealing it today. I have already made my choice.”
“However, today is not the time, nor the place, to talk about my future.”
