"You're fed up with all the talk - am I going, am I staying, how much they will pay me, how much they won't pay me", Griezmann says in the trailer.

The 27-year-old Frenchman had said he would let everyone know ahead of France's World Cup opener where he'll be playing on the club level next season.

Barcelona's pursuit played out in public for several months before Griezmann said last week that he would share his plans so that they wouldn't overshadow the World Cup.

Griezmann's future has been the subject of intense speculation for the best part of two years with a host of top clubs eager to sign him.

Eight years ago, National Basketball Association star James revealed he was leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers in an ESPN live show also titled "The Decision".

France global Griezmann has been heavily linked to Barcelona, with the LaLiga champions said to be prepared to activate his reported €100million release clause. As a effect of his comments, Atletico reported Barca to Federation Internationale de Football Association for making an illegal approach for their player.

Griezmann announced on Spanish television on Thursday that he would be staying at Atletico next season amid heavy interest from La Liga champions Barcelona.

Eventually, Atletico snapped. A furious statement released by the club said "enough is enough" and condemned Barca's "inappropriate conduct" in their attempts to sign Griezmann.

Do you think Griezmann made the right decision?

Griezmann called a press conference Tuesday, which many thought would be the end of his months-long decision.
