Chelsea told they will have to stump up cash to land La Liga sensation

GriezmannChelsea fans are looking up with interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they see the latest gossip coming from the Daily Mail, who think that the Blues will have to splash the cash if they want to land Atletico Madrid winger Antoine Griezmann.

The Blues are tracking the Frenchman and were seriously interested in him after seeing his release clause stood at only £43.5 million, but after his brilliant season, Diego Simeone and his board think he is worth far more.

As one of our punters notes, Atleti are quite within their rights to try and get more money for the player but at the end of the day, with his release clause standing at £43.5 million, the Blues could well make a bid and force the Madrid side’s hand, especially if the winger himself fancies a move to the home of the English champions, and by all accounts, he does.

Chelsea fans. Would you sacrifice buying a couple of players simply to land one world class star? With FFP regulations now so important to the club, is that something you think Jose Mourinho will have to consider doing? Let us know your thoughts below.
