   France's Antoine Griezmann smiles as he answers journalists questions

According to French sports daily L'Equipe, Atletico Madrid sporting director Andrea Berta visited Monaco earlier this month and has managed to strike a deal with the Principality club.

But rather than stating where he will be playing next season, Griezmann will only announce if he's staying or leaving Atletico Madrid.

Lemar, a winger, is with France in Russian Federation for the World Cup. This is because he, alongside whichever club he named, would be liable to sanctions from Federation Internationale de Football Association seeing as the player has a valid contract with Atletico Madrid and no offer has officially been made yet.

Griezmann is expected to announce his future before his nation's World Cup campaign begins against Australia on Saturday.

Indian scientists discover new planet 600 light years away
The planet is seven times nearer to the host star than the Earth-Sun distance which leads to its surface temperature to 600°C. Being that close, you might think that the planets would be unbearably hot but the scientists say that might not be the case.


Griezmann is now valued at £200m, but will see his Atleti release clause half in price at the start of next month. Reported to be the Spanish champions' first choice target of the summer window, many have anticipated that the Frenchman will move to Catalonia once his release clause drops to €100m in July.
