Chelsea fight Man City to complete move for exceptional striker

GriezmannManchester City and Chelsea fans haven’t had too much to argue about this season, with the Blues struggling in the bottom-half of the Premier League table, but the latest piece of transfer gossip has rekindled old rivalries.

CalcioMercato reports that both Premier League clubs are preparing bids for Atletico Madrid sensation Antoine Griezmann in January.

Chelsea’s interest is unsurprising, given their league position and the form of the current strikers at the club, but angry Blues fans have accused the Citizens of trying to hoard talent after reports of their interest emerged.

City moving for Griezmann would come as a major surprise as Manuel Pellegrini’s squad boasts a wealth of attacking talent, including Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling, Kevin De Bruyne and Wilfried Bony- and fans of the club admit they’re unsure of where French international Griezmann would fit in.

Whilst Chelsea are considered by many of our punters to be the favourites for Griezmann’s signature, there are concerns that the player would not agree to a move- especially with Atletico in the hunt for another La Liga crown and Chelsea at risk of missing out on Champions League football this season.

Chelsea fans, can you sign Griezmann? Would Manchester City have a spot for him? Let us know in the comments below!
