France boss Didier Deschamps says Antoine Griezmann will decide his future before the World Cup and has not been affected by all the speculation flying about.

Griezmann has said previously he wants his future sorted before he heads off to Russia with France’s first game scheduled for June 16 against Australia.

The forward’s release clause reportedly drops to €100 million on July 1st, and Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu said yesterday he wouldn’t talk about a move until then.

“Griezmann’s not annoyed [by all the speculation],” said Deschamps.

”He said that he would sort the situation out before the World Cup and that’s what he will do.

“We will have to see what his choice is. Maybe we’ve spoken about it and maybe we’ve re-analysed it, but at the end of the day he’s the one that has to make the decision.”

Griezmann is dominating the headlines and will probably continue to do so until an official announcement on his plans is officially made. Let’s hope it’s sooner rather than later.
