Pique's company produced the film. "We will speak with him and Umtiti internally after the World Cup about what happened but we won't make any more public comments". "That said, we are sorry and we regret that the fans could have felt disappointed" by Griezmann's final decision and the way it was delivered, said Mestre. "We want committed players who have decided they want to be a success here above anything else", he added. "He told me there was a possibility he would go to Barcelona".

The defender's strong campaign saw a battle over his worldwide future this year, but he chose to remain with France and started Les Blues' World Cup opener, a 2-1 win over Australia.

Lucas said of his France teammate: "I am very happy that he stays with us".

Atletico had sent officials to the France squad at the World Cup in Russian Federation to get these deals completed, and they are going to return to Spain with a lot of satisfaction.
