A report claims that Antoine Griezmann is to defy Atletico Madrid's orders by refusing to return to training next week as he is still desperate to join Barcelona.

Antoine Griezmann's lawyer has reportedly instructed Atletico Madrid that the Barcelona-linked striker will not be reporting back for pre-season training.

The France international was expected to secure a move to Camp Nou at the start of the month once his release clause dropped to the £100m mark.

However, an agreement has yet to be reached between the three parties involved and Atletico issued a statement on Saturday stating that Griezmann must report to the club's Cerro del Espino training complex today.

According to Spanish outlet Marca, though, the 28-year-old has told Atleti via his lawyer that he will not be returning.

Griezmann, who scored a further 15 La Liga goals last season, is said to be hopeful that a move to Barcelona can soon be finalised.
