Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern have not taken news that Chelsea are keen on Antoine Griezmann well, with one punter over by the pool table almost in tears.
TuttoMercatoWeb have provided the update, claiming that the Blues are in the race for the France international as they draw up their plans for the summer transfer window.
They claim that the 26-year-old is a ‘concrete’ target for the London club and that there may be some progression over the coming weeks.
Man United have been heavily aligned with the Atleti ace of late, but reports from the Independent have claimed that they’ve de-prioritised Griezmann, while The Sun have revealed in the past that failure to qualify for the Champions League would sway him away from an Old Trafford switch.
Should the La Liga ace head to Stamford Bridge he could line up in a forward three with Eden Hazard and Diego Costa, which has a few Chelsea fans here drooling into their pint glasses.
Antoine Griezmann should pick Chelsea over Manchester United – agree?
