The Chelsea supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are in fine voice, having kept their seven point lead at the top of the table.
Antonio Conte’s side secured an important three points at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday evening, beating AFC Bournemouth 3-1, despite having a scare when Josh King scored a goal to make it 2-1.
Talk here in the Transfer Tavern always very quickly leads to transfer rumours and gossip, and the latest line coming into the Tavern comes from the Daily Mail – who are claiming that Chelsea and Manchester City have made contact with Atletico Madrid regarding the situation of attacker Antoine Griezmann.
The French international’s name comes up in conversation almost every hour here in the Tavern, with the 26-year-old one of the world’s most sought after footballers.
Our landlord thinks that Chelsea would become a serious force if they managed to somehow capture Griezmann in the summer, and quips that the Blues would dominate the Champions League next season, especially if they manage to keep hold of Eden Hazard as well.
Chelsea fans…. What do you make of this news? Excited? Let us know below!
