Jun 13 2018 by Marjorie Miles
Griezmann, a target for Manchester United past year, has been linked with a move to Barcelona after a successful season that saw him score 29 goals in 49 games and pick up the Europa League title.
Atletico Madrid have announced they have made an agreement in principle with Monaco to sign midfielder Thomas Lemar.
The winger still did enough to secure a place in Didier Deschamps' France squad for the Federation Internationale de Football Association 2018 World Cup in Russia.
A statement on Atletico's website confirmed the clubs will work over the next few days to complete the transfer.
Having previously stated that he would announce his decision before France's opening World Cup game on Saturday, Griezmann chose to keep quiet. Griezmann had been strongly linked with a move to Barcelona.
