Barcelona reserve No.7 shirt for Griezmann - FCNaija

Barcelona and Manchester United target Antoine Griezmann says he is expecting his future to be sorted before he gets on the plane with France to Russia for the 2018 World Cup.

The future of Griezmann promises to be one of the lengthy sagas of the summer transfer window and according to L'Equipe, the former Real Sociedad man wants his future to be sorted out quickly and to go to the World Cup with it already arranged.

Explaining why he wants to settle this before the summer's tournament, Griezmann said that he doesn't want to be asked about transfer rumours at every press conference in Russia.

"My future will be decided before the World Cup. I want to go to Russia with a clear mind.

"I think this is what everybody wants. I said to my sister [who takes care of his business] that whether I stay [at Atletico Madrid] or not, she has to let me know before it.

"It's not so much a question of knowing where I'll play, which can be quite a boring thing, but more so the fact that I would otherwise be called and asked what I think about this and that and about what I want.

Griezmann currently has a contract with Atletico Madrid until 2022, but has been linked with a move to Barcelona.
