Antoine Griezmann has announced he is staying with Atletico Madrid after months of transfer speculation.

The France striker had been heavily linked with a €100million move to Barcelona this summer, having last year been a reported target for Manchester United.

However, the 27-year-old has now decided to extend his four-year stay with Europa League winners Atletico.

Griezmann, who had said he would clarify his future before France's World Cup opener against Australia on Saturday, posted a video on social media on Thursday evening in which he confirmed he was staying put. 

It is the second successive summer that Griezmann has opted to stay with Atletico amid speculation of a big-money switch away.

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

Thursday's announcement will be welcome news for the Rojiblancos.

Since joining from Real Sociedad for a reported £24million in 2014, Griezmann has scored 112 goals in all competitions for Atletico and finished each season as the club's top scorer.

He also helped Atletico reach the 2016 Champions League final and scored twice as they beat Marseille 3-0 in last month's Europa League final
