Premier League outfit Chelsea have been given the green light to secure the signing of Antoine Griezmann by Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone.
This news has been spotted by a Chelsea fan in today’s The Metro and has seen several Blues followers race to the bar in celebration at the prospect of such a top class player joining the club.
The news has been sourced by Fichajes.net and it claims that the controversial Madrid boss will not stand in the Frenchman’s way – provided that Chelsea included Diego Costa in any deal which takes place.
The 25-year-old has been a real hit for the Spanish outfit and playing in an advanced role he has netted 49 goals in 94 games and has been heavily linked with a Premier League switch previously.
One Chelsea fan is chatting to the landlord about the weekend’s football news and he thinks Griezmann is destined for the Premier League at some point in his career, but concedes a Chelsea move looks unlikely whilst they are not in the Champions League.
Chelsea fans, would you welcome Griezmann at Stamford Bridge? Can he bring back the glory days to the club after a miserable season? Does Diego Costa still have a future?
