Since joining Atletico in 2014 from Real Sociedad, Griezmann has scored 112 goals in 208 appearances for the Madrid outfit.

Along with Barca, Manchester United were also linked with a move for the 2018 Europa League victor, but all to no avail.

"It's a mess, you have to think it over".

Ultimately, the player chose to remain in the Spanish capital and to try to bring the Champions League to the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano.

'I have made a decision to stay, ' he finally proclaimed at the end of a much-criticised mini documentary which aired last night.

Draymond Green on Thompson: 'Ain't Cut the Same'
Officials had promised a more interactive parade this year for the team that has won three championships in four years. Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green reacts during the championship parade in downtown Oakland, California .

"Your choice is to stay at Atletico with a much higher salary than at Barcelona but with the risk of not winning the Champions League or to go to Barcelona, where they'll pay less than at Atletico in the next years".

That inspired the striker to stand by the club at a time when they would not have been able to sign a replacement, yet there was an expectation that he would make a big-money move this summer.

However, Pique's hopes of lining up alongside Griezmann next season were dashed when the prolific forward confirmed that he would remain at Atletico.

Juventus boss, Massimiliano Allegri, recently stated in an interview that his star player, Paulo Dybala, is certain to stay at the Serie A club for one more season at least.

"My fans, my team, my home", he finally exclaimed in a message that was also released simultaneously on his Twitter page and shared by his relieved club. "I will not regret it".
