Chelsea told by Atletico Madrid they can have their talisman for £47.3m

GriezmannChelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are unsure whether this target is worth the money after talkSPORT revealed Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann has a release clause in his contract which is worth £47.3m.

The Frenchman has been linked with a move away from the current La Liga champions as it is expected that Atleti will allow him to leave for a fee just short of £50m.

Griezmann was named La Liga player of the month in April and it is not a surprise that Jose Mourinho is keen on signing him, as he looks to strengthen his team even more for next season.

The 24-year-old has scored 22 goals in 34 appearances this season which is more than Neymar, Luis Suarez, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema.

But Mourinho will have to fend off competition because it is inevitable that other clubs will become interested when they become aware of the release clause.

Chelsea fans. Do you think Jose Mourinho will sign Antoine Greizmann in the summer? Let us know your thoughts below.
