However, Griezmann - whose brace against Marseille secured a Europa League triumph for Diego Simeone's side in May - has elected to stay put, committing his future to Atleti as they look to secure a Champions League title.

"They told me that it's normal for you to be offered more money where you're the club's main player", she explained on the phone in the documentary in which Griezmann announced his decision, relaying her discussions with the Blaugrana.

That led to Atletico releasing a scathing statement declaring they were "sick of Barcelona's attitude" in the lead- up to the Europa League final in Lyon, which was widely expected to be the player's last big game for Atletico.

The game would end 5-0 to Russian Federation , thus continuing the tradition of hosts not losing their opening World Cup game. First-half substitute Denis Cheryshev scored his first worldwide goals in the 43rd and 90+1 minutes in World Cup opener.

Following the broadcast, Griezmann posted a video of himself standing outside the Wanda Metropolitano with the caption: "My fans, my team, MY HOME!" "This is going to make a difference".

One of those players is Griezmann's global team-mate Thomas Lemar, who appears bound for Atletico after the club announced on Tuesday that an agreement has been reached to sign Monaco star.

However, Pique's hopes of lining up alongside Griezmann next season were dashed when the prolific forward confirmed that he would remain at Atletico.

"If they [Atleti] buy good players we can win the Champions League here and enter the history of the club".

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. "I will not regret it".

Griezmann can now fully focus on France's World Cup campaign which gets underway against Australia in Kazan on Saturday.
