'Atletico are doing everything they can to keep the team growing; it's awesome, they're making a lot of efforts, I cannot stand it, I need to tell people that I want to stay.' Griezmann added. He then Tweeted 'My fans, my team, MY HOME!' to his Atletico fans.
"I have chose to stay", said Griezmann, before tweeting: "My fans, my team, MY HOME!".

He added: "I feel there are things to do with Atletico".
"If they [Atleti] buy good players we can win the Champions League here and enter the history of the club". At Barcelona, I would just be one more. "I will not regret it".
The 27-year-old made the announcement to stay at the Wanda Metropolitano on a Spanish TV programme 'The Decision'.
