The Catalans were in hot pursuit of Griezmann past year, but the France star opted to sign a new contract with Atletico through 2023, announcing his intention in a televised special called "La Decision".
"I wanted to thank you for all the love you've given me in these five years, in which I've won my first important trophies with a club".
From July 1, Griezmann's contract sees a £104m release clause and that would represent an affordable fee for Barcelona to acquire the services of Griezmann.More news: Facebook increases pay for contractors and content moderators
"It has been five incredible years, thank you very much for everything, I will carry you in my heart", Griezmann said in the video that was published via Atletico's Twitter account, which was further confirmation of MARCA's initial report. "New meeting on next days".
"I have made a decision to leave, see other things, have other challenges and with great difficulty, this is what I feel and I need", Griezmann said. "I believe that is what I need".
