Antoine Griezmann’s future is still a mystery

Griezmann: Australia won't be easy Messi names the only player that can help Barcelona win the Champions League next season

'The two clubs will continue to work in the coming days in order to find a definitive agreement'.

The winger still did enough to secure a place in Didier Deschamps' France squad for the Federation Internationale de Football Association 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Lemar was strongly linked with both Liverpool and Arsenal last season but is now set for a move to the Wanda Metropolitano.

Anyone still hoping to sign Lemar will have to consider alternative options, as Atletico Madrid have confirmed they have reached an agreement with AS Monaco to sign the 22-year-old.

France coach Didier Deschamps said one part of Antoine Griezmann's club future was clear - the Atletico Madrid forward is staying in Spain.

But Griezmann has remained tight-lipped on his decision, refusing to reveal his future destination just yet.

"Today is not the day to talk about my future", he said at a press conference on Tuesday.

"I am very sorry, I know you have all been waiting but I will not give my decision today". Reported to be the Spanish champions' first choice target of the summer window, many have anticipated that the Frenchman will move to Catalonia once his release clause drops to €100m in July.

Griezmann has scored 112 goals and assisted a further 40 strikes in 209 games for Atletico since his arrival at the Vicente Calderon in 2014.

Lemar played a key role for Leonardo Jardim's young side as they ended Paris Saint-Germain's dominance by claiming the Ligue 1 title in impressive fashion in 2016-17.
