The 22-year-old is now at the World Cup with France, who are due to play their first game of the tournament on Saturday against Australia.
The France forward, who scored 29 goals and created 15 others last season, was strongly linked with Manchester United last summer before a contract tying him to Atletico until 2022 was agreed.

The deal, should he sign, will make him the club's highest paid player; and the entire club has been endorsing the deal since it was offered - from the president right down to the kit man.
The duo are being interviewed at the same time, reeling off names of their favourite players as the presenter says: 'They are so cute we can not refuse them anything'.
Now it is Griezmann signing the autographs and carrying the hopes of a nation on his shoulders.
