Antoine Griezmann future: Reporter uses Google Translate to ask cheeky question

Liverpool and Arsenal target Thomas Lemar set to sign for La Liga giants

Maybe Thomas Lemar's proposed move bodes well for Antoine Griezmann's future at Atletico Madrid.

Lemar is a known target of Liverpool and Arsenal, but the forward is set to join the La Liga side after the club announced a deal had been agreed on their Twitter account.

The Atletico statement reads that the club has reached "a preliminary agreement over the transfer of Thomas Lemar", and that to "Over the next days, both clubs will work to close the agreement for the definitive transfer".

A mischievous scheme from a Spanish journalist desperate to know where Antoine Griezmann will be playing next season has left French officials fuming at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

The 27-year-old France striker called a press conference, but surprisingly refused to confirm whether he will move or stay in the Spanish capital.

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.

"Today is not the day to talk about my future", he said.

Last year it was Manchester United who looked to be leading the chase for his services only for Griezmann to end up signing a one-year contract extension with Atletico, tying him to the club until 2022.

After scoring nine times in Ligue 1 as Monaco won the title a year ago, he scored three goals and added 10 assists in all competitions this past season.

France play their opening game of the tournament on Saturday against Australia.

On Tuesday Griezmann revealed he has made a decision regarding a potential summer transfer to Barcelona, but isn't ready to make that decision public.
