Before the World Cup in Russia, many tipped the 27-year-old to leave Atletico Madrid for the Catalan giants, but he ultimately decided to stay with the Rojiblancos.

The likes of Luis Suarez and Messi publicly stated they would welcome the Frenchman at Barca, but Griezmann has admitted he feels "proud" to have rejected the Blaugrana.

"Turning down Barcelona? It was my decision and I am proud of it, now I am excited about the year ahead with Atletico," he told reporters, according to Diario AS.

"It is not long until I compete for the European Super Cup and we obviously will want to win that too.

"I just want to savour this (World Cup) victory with France and the French people, then to enjoy my holiday and be able to relax.

"I am really happy and for all my teammates too, it was a wonderful experience."
