With Radamel Falcao yet to officially put pen to paper on a season-long loan deal with Chelsea, the full expectation is that this will be concluded in a matter of time.
If the truth be told, our resident Blues fans aren’t so pleased with this deal with the Colombian international looking to the world like a player who is on a steady decline in his career.
All the better for Blues fans that Chelsea continue to be linked with Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann then with the latest from the Evening Standard that Jose Mourinho will offer £35.5 million plus Mohamed Salah in an attempt to prise the French international away from the Vicente Calderon.
Perhaps Griezmann is a smidgen more attainable than he was only weeks ago with Atletico having already wrapped up a deal to land Villarreal’s Argentine striker Luciano Vietto, not to mention closing in on a deal to sign Porto’s sought-after Jackson Martinez.
While Martinez is widely seen as a like-for-like replacement for the now departed Mario Mandzukic who joined Juventus, the capture of Vietto as well is being looked on with intrigue in regards to the fact he could well be a like-for-like replacement for Griezmann.
Griezmann is an excellent player with skill in abundance and an ability to play either up top or on the flanks.
Earlier this summer, Jose Mourinho came out and publicly denied that the Frenchman was a player Chelsea were interested in but as we know with the Portuguese boss, some things he says must be taken with a pinch of salt.
If Chelsea do get their way and land Griezmann, who could be joining him in West London however?
