Both clubs announced a "preliminary agreement" on a transfer, with Atletico saying the clubs will work together to complete the details.

Despite Antoine Griezmann appearing ready to make an announcement on his future on Tuesday, the Atletico Madrid striker has claimed it wasn't the right time to do so.

Didier Deschamps left many top stars out of his World Cup squad but kept faith with Lemar, who scored recently for France in a win over Colombia and bagged a brace past year against the Dutch.

"We understand there won't be easy matches at the World Cup for us", the Atletico Madrid star told French sports daily L'Equipe.

The forward has been expected to confirm his future before the World Cup and said Saturday that was still the case. I know that many of you were waiting for [his decision], but I will not be revealing it today.

Griezmann has scored 112 goals and assisted a further 40 strikes in 209 games for Atletico since his arrival at the Vicente Calderon in 2014.

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.

If the Catalan club signed him now, it would cost them €200 million but if they wait until the turn of the month, it will be halved to €100 million.

But last week Lionel Messi said he was sure he would link up well with Griezmann were he to move to the Camp Nou.
