The REAL reason Antoine Griezmann deal hasn't been announced

Атлетико объявил о переходе лидера Монако Лемара

Lemar, a winger, is with France in Russian Federation for the World Cup.

Griezmann has called on Atletico to invest more in their squad, and Lemar's arrival is a sign the La Liga runners-up are taking their star's advice.

According to French sports daily L'Equipe, Atletico Madrid sporting director Andrea Berta visited Monaco earlier this month and has managed to strike a deal with the Principality club.

But any desire to sign Lemar was ended when Atletico Madrid reached a preliminary agreement with AS Monaco to sign the 22-year-old on Tuesday.

Monaco echoed Atleti's statement on their official Twitter feed, saying: "AS Monaco and @Atleti announce that they have found an agreement in principle for the transfer of Thomas Lemar".

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

Graphologist Koo Bon-jin said Mr Kim's signature suggested an ambitious man who is "intuitive, rather than rational and logical". It added that North Korea and the United States should take legal, institutional steps to guarantee it.

With ongoing speculation linking him with Barcelona, Griezmann had said he would confirm his position before France's World Cup opener against Australia on Saturday.

"Today is not the day to talk about my future", said Griezmann. "Yes, I have already made a decision about my future".

Both Barcelona and Manchester United have expressed interest in the forward, who has a release clause of €200m.

Lemar scored three goals and provided 10 assists this past season.

Lemar played a key role for Leonardo Jardim's young side as they ended Paris Saint-Germain's dominance by claiming the Ligue 1 title in impressive fashion in 2016-17.
