Antoine Griezmann: Gerard Pique reacts as Atletico Madrid star rejects Barcelona

"You made a decision to stay at Atleti and I hope you go great this season!"

But the truth is, what I'm going to say now...

The clip then fades to black.

The documentary attempted to emphasise that Griezmann was deliberating over his future for the past two months, before it finally revealed that the Frenchman had made up his mind on June 3.

And yet, he opted to reveal his decision in a 45-minute TV special - in a stunt reminiscent of LeBron James' identically titled ESPN special in 2010, when the National Basketball Association star announced he was leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Miami Heat.

The post was welcomed by Barcelona defender Gerard Pique, who encouraged his followers to watch the programme.

North America will host the six-team playoff tournament in November 2025 to decide the last two places in the 48-team lineup. However, the absence of Italy is strikingly odd while US fans won't get to cheer on Team USA like they did in 2014.

The announcement ends another summer of speculation surrounding Greizmann, who was on the brink of joining Manchester United last summer before Atletico were hit with a transfer embargo.

However, he has since been heavily linked with with a €100 million move to Spanish champions Barcelona, as they look to further tighten their grip on the La Liga title next season and make a better stab at the Champions League.

"I'm so happy. I really appreciate the club's confidence in me", Gimenez said in a statement.

The La Liga giants agreed a fee with Monaco to sign Griezmann's global team-mate Thomas Lemar.

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.
