Lionel Messi: 'Barcelona need Antoine Griezmann for Champions League'

Antoine Griezmann intends to clear up his future before the World Cup begins, saying after France's draw with the United States on Saturday that he will reveal all this week.

Griezmann was pushed by reporters from Mundo Deportivo yesterday about his situation and whether he would be moving to Barcelona.

Some heartwarming footage has emerged of a young Antoine Griezmann meeting his France heroes back in 1998.

"I am in agreement that to win the Champions League again we need to have the best players". Barca hope to sign him on July 1, when his release clause drops to €100 million, while Atletico are trying to convince him to stay by offering an improved contract.

Seeing how things have come full circle for Griezmann is just handsome and we're eager to see how he performs on the grandest stage of them all, especially considering how electric he was two years back. "There is still one more week [until the World Cup starts], but I think we will know during the week". It depends on the technical secretary and coach.

Of course, if he was staying at Atleti, why wouldn't he just come out and say it now if he's already made his decision? And he is very good, " Messi was quoted by Goal to have told Sport.

Griezmann is looking to cap another spectacular club season, in which he scored 29 goals in 49 games as Atletico finished runners-up in La Liga behind Barcelona and lifted the UEFA Europa League.
