"Appearing alongside Griezmann, France coach Didier Deschamps joked that the player will be "staying in Spain" and teammate Kylian Mbappe said the only thing he knows that "[Griezmann] will be on the plane [to Russia]".
"The French International is concentrated with his national team in Russian Federation to play the 2018 FIFA World Cup that will take place the next Thursday, 14th of July".
France play their opening game of the tournament on Saturday against Australia.
Just as it looked as if this would prove to be a key day to find out what Antoine Griezmann's future holds, everyone thought he would announce his decision today, it was in reality a press conference which he was obligated to attend.
"Well No 1, he's made a decision", Balague told Sky Sports News.
For the first time in his career, the former Real Sociedad man will lead the Les Bleus' line for the first time in Russian Federation, having been a bit-part player back in 2014.
