Being away on worldwide duty with France at the World Cup was not enough to quell the speculation, made all the worse when the Atletico Madrid forward revealed that he would be announcing his plans in a televised segment later that evening - in a similar manner to LeBron James' infamous "Decision" announcement in 2010.

Manchester United exhausted and failed to land him last year but the forward ended up signing a one-year contact extension with Atletico, tying him to the club until 2022.

Griezmann will now focus fully on France's World Cup Group C campaign which starts on Saturday against Australia.

Griezmann has netted 112 goals for Atletico during his four years at the club, but Barcelona have been persistent in their hunt, despite being reported to Federation Internationale de Football Association over an alleged illegal approach last December.

While the 27-year-old forward and his sponsors may have been happy with the attention the video announcement created on social media platforms, Griezmann was criticised for taking part in a video that was ridiculed by many for being more than a little self-indulgent.

"But it is not bad luck, something has been missing, and in the league we are always second or third, we are missing something. It's incredible. I can't take it anymore, I need to tell the people that I want to stay", he said.

"I have made a decision to stay".

Despite most eyes being on the World Cup, Griezmann's announcement came at a lull after the opening game, but fans were frustrated with the drawn-out announcement.
