But Griezmann appeared to be on his way to Barca after revealing he was leaving Atletico Madrid earlier this summer.

Despite that, after France's 4-0 win over Andorra on Tuesday, Griezmann revealed he might not stay in Spain, after all.

Following the European Championship qualifier, Griezmann said: “As I said, I know where I want to go.

"I am also keen to get this over with as quickly as possible…

"I don’t know if I will stay in La Liga.”

PATIENCE

The Atelti talisman famously stuck around at the club whilst they served a transfer ban – despite the advances of United.

But now he has called time on his five-year stint at the Wanda Metropolitano – and has a £106m release clause.

Griezmann, who scored 21 goals last season, had already previously revealed he needs a little time to get his favoured move over the line.

He said: "I know where I want to go, and the sacrifices I have to make to get there.

"I just ask for a little patience.
