The Man Utd and Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are taking this as a positive sign…
Whilst the summer transfer window only closed a few weeks ago, the attention of many of the punters in the Football Transfer Tavern has already turned to the January window and beyond.
Transfers are always on the mind in the Transfer Tavern – and some huge players are regularly being touted with big money Premier League moves.
One such player is French superstar Antoine Griezmann, who currently plies his trade in La Liga with Atletico Madrid.
He stands atop the lists of a great number of fans in the Tavern, and his latest moves could indicate that change is coming for the Frenchman…
According to L’Equipe, Griezmann has decided to ditch his agent in favour of managing his own personal future.
This is particularly significant because a player of his calibre is always, typically, represented by an agent – so Griezmann seemingly isn’t happy about something.
Our landlord thinks this could be huge news for Chelsea and United. He thinks that Griezmann and his agent must have had a falling out over an issue – and he has perhaps too quickly jumped to the conclusion that perhaps he was unable to negotiate a deal away from Atletico Madrid over the summer on behalf of the Frenchman.
That suggestion is certainly a jump to conclusions – but this decision does raise a few meaningful questions from the fans in the Football Transfer Tavern.
One fan leaning up against the bar has suggested that this change would likely only happen in the run up to a fresh set of negotiations. Greizmann only signed a new deal with Atletico in June – so perhaps this is an indication of a potential move away from the club?
One slightly more cynical Man Utd fan in-house tonight has suggested that, alternatively, could his agent have been attempting to force a move out of the club against Griezmann’s wishes?
At the moment, this is all just speculation. But this decision has certainly raised a few eyebrows in the Tavern.
Our landlord thinks that it almost certainly means that something is coming for Griezmann…
Chelsea and Utd fans – thoughts? Is Greizmann coming to England?
