GETTYBarcelona Transfer News Mohamed Salah could be heading to Barcelona in a stunning swap deal

The forward's attentions will now switch to France's World Cup campaign, with the striker set to spearhead Didier Deschamps' attack in Russian Federation.

"My fans, my team, my home!" the French hitman posted - along with a very cool video - on his official Twitter account following his revelation.

Griezmann has remained coy about his future in recent weeks, but now, in a sensational TV programme in Spain named 'La Decision', he has announced that he will be staying at the Wanda Metropolitano beyond this summer.

"I went home very affected and my family too, I did not understand why they bust me".

The clip then fades to black.

His announcement mirrors a similar method used by National Basketball Association player LeBron James when he moved to the Cleveland Cavaliers from the Miami Heat in 2010.

It is the first time the Saudi-led coalition of mostly Gulf states has tried to capture such a well-defended major city in Yemen . The Houthis deny they are Iranian pawns and say their revolt aims to target corruption and defend Yemen from invaders.

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.

Barcelona centre-back, Gerard Pique, has tweeted about the same, saying he will look forward to the announcement of the Frenchman's decision.

Griezmann took the unprecedented step of announcing his decision during an extensive documentary aired on Movistar+.

'Atletico are doing everything they can to keep the team growing, it's wonderful, they're making a lot of efforts, I cannot stand it, I need to tell people that I want to stay'. France Football reported Griezmann will sign a new contract in Russian Federation at some point on Thursday.

Despite most eyes being on the World Cup, Griezmann's announcement came at a lull after the opening game, but fans were frustrated with the drawn-out announcement. Sources said Griezmann worked actively to bring Lemar to Atletico.

"I'm so happy. I really appreciate the club's confidence in me", Gimenez said in a statement.
