France star Lemar set for Atletico Madrid move

Messi Barca need Griezmann for Champions League

It was no secret that Atletico had been looking for attacking reinforcements, as the club reluctantly sold both Yannick Carrasco and Nicolas Gaitan to Chinese Super League side Dalian Yifang in February, well after the transfer window had closed in LaLiga.

Lemar's potential transfer could have major implications for the future of compatriot Antoine Griezmann, who has been heavily linked with a move from Atletico Madrid to Barcelona.

Frenchman Antoine Griezmann scored two goals for Atletico Madrid, and he could be on his way to Barcelona this summer.

However, at a France press conference on Tuesday afternoon, he declined to give an update on his future intentions.

Aged seven, and wearing the No 7 on his back, he is seen with a friend excitedly running around getting autographs from the World Cup-winning squad.

Griezmann is expected to announce his future before his nation's World Cup campaign begins against Australia on Saturday. I know that many of you were waiting for [his decision], but I will not be revealing it today.


"I'm sorry for the wait, but today is not the day".

Griezmann has been dedicating a lot of time to his decision, and reports claim that he's turned to French teammates while preparing for the World Cup for advice.

But, according to "Canal + Francia", Griezmann has made a decision to stay with Atletico and lead the club's project.

Griezmann signed a one-year contract extension with Atletico last summer that runs until 2022.

Barcelona are reportedly ready to trigger Griezmann's €100m (£88m) release clause.
