Griezmann, a target for Barca, was the star of the television documentary La Decision, which aired on Thursday.

France worldwide Antoine Griezmann has extended his stay at Atletico Madrid, snubbing interest from FC Barcelona despite the likes of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez urging him to sign for the Catalan club.

That has now been made official as Atletico announced Griezmann has signed a contract which ties him to Diego Simeone's side until 2023.

Griezmann's deal was set to run to 2022 but for the second year in a row he has agreed to extend - signing for a further year - after opting not to pursue interest from Barcelona.

"His choice to stay at Atletico, he made it a month ago", added Hernandez.

"As a club, we respect Griezmann's decision to renew with Atletico as we respect any player's right to decide their future", vice president Jordi Mestre said at the presentation of Eric Abidal as the club's new sporting director.

The Frenchman was reported to be moving away from the club, with Barcelona in line to sign him.

Atletico Madrid officials were sent to meet the France players in Russian Federation.

The defender's strong campaign saw a battle over his worldwide future this year, but he chose to remain with France and started Les Blues' World Cup opener, a 2-1 win over Australia.

"I'm not responsible for the fact that Barcelona didn't sign a player about whom we've been speaking for the past few months", said Pique.

France laboured hard against Austrailia before they could secure a 2-1 over the Socceroos and coach Didier Deschamps criticised their performance especially that of Griezmann.
