A few of our Chelsea regulars were inside the Football Transfer Tavern early yesterday morning to catch a glimpse of their heroes in the Blues’ end of season friendly in Australia against Sydney FC on our large projector screen.
Eager to watch their Premier League title winning side one last time, part of their reasoning to get up early was the sheer fact that they won’t know what to do with themselves after the Champions League Final on Saturday evening with no more football for a little while.
One thing that might pep them up however is the potential signing of Atletico Madrid’s French international forward Antoine Griezmann who has been heavily linked with a summer switch to Stamford Bridge of late.
The latest on the situation is a rather categorical claim from Jose Mourinho that the Blues are not interested in signing Griezmann this summer but how many times has the Portuguese tactician lied to us in the past?
The fact of the matter is that the Blues will need to replace Didier Drogba who announced that he will departing West London for a second time before their final game of the season against Sunderland.
With few transfer windows, if any, passing by without Chelsea making some kind of splurge in the market, we have identified five Blues targets who could well end up following Griezmann to SW6 this summer.
