Antoine Griezmann gets autographs from France 1998 World Cup heroes

Griezmann: Australia won't be easy

Messi names the only player that can help Barcelona win the Champions League next season

The France global - who has spent three seasons with Monaco since arriving from Caen - is in Russian Federation for the World Cup.

"Over the next days, both clubs will work to close the agreement", the Madrid club said of the attacking midfielder usually deployed on the left.

France travel to the World Cup on the back of a surprising 1-1 draw with the US in Lyon on Saturday night, but Griezmann reckons there's no need for his teammates to panic, and says their preparation for Australia starts now.

The Frenchman is being linked with a move to Barcelona, although there's still a possibility he could remain at Atletico Madrid. "And Griezmann is one of them", Messi told Sport.

Griezmann had hinted that he would sort out his future before the World Cup, but now it looks like fans will have to wait until afterwards to find out what he has decided.

Saturday rain showers and storms linger through the weekend
The weekend features a more typical summer pattern with highs in the upper 80s and only isolated shower/storm chances on Sunday . Temps today will be well below average along the coast this afternoon with the numbers holding in the low to mid 60s.

Lemar, who joined Monaco in 2015, has made 12 appearances for his country since making his debut against the Ivory Coast in November 2016.

When Antoine Griezmann conducted a press conference at the France national team training camp on Tuesday, everyone expected him to reveal his future.

Should he make the switch, Griezmann would add further star power to an attack that already includes Messi, Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele.

"I'm sorry for the wait, but today is not the day". "The decision has been taken but it is not the time or the place to talk about it", he said.
