Denmark, too, won't be boring - we have to be prepared.

Lionel Messi says signing Antoine Griezmann would be a "brilliant" boost to Barcelona's hopes of winning the Champions League.

According to "Canal + France", Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann will announce on Tuesday in a press conference that he will continue with the Rojiblanco, accepting their offer to renew and turning down the chance to move to Barcelona. The prolific forward's current employers have also been keen to agree fresh terms.

Griezmann may yet be able to replicate the achievement of the France 98 side and bring the story full circle, fulfilling his childhood dreams.

Puig officially extended his contract with Barcelona and now has a release clause of €100 million, which should fend off any potential suitors for a while.

Griezmann insists he is made a decision on his club future but has refused to reveal if he will remain with Atletico next season.

"Our ambition to succeed and grow in the Premier League remains as strong as ever".

"I know there's a lot of expectation, I know many were waiting for it, but today is not the day (to speak about my future)".

Aged seven, and wearing the No 7 on his back, he is seen with a friend excitedly running around getting autographs from the World Cup-winning squad.

Messi is still in search of his first World Cup triumph, and where Argentina finish this summer may determine his future with the national team.
