Manchester United and Chelsea fans are at each others throats in the Transfer Tavern more often than not as it is, though reports in the Daily Mail claiming the two titans will battle it out for a major summer transfer has only added to it.

While it’s reasonably light-hearted (for now) it could turn out to be one of the sagas of the summer with both Premier League giants reportedly chasing Atletico Madrid Antoine Griezmann.

The Frenchman has established himself as one on of the top attacking players in Europe, excelling since a big move from former club Real Sociedad.

He has scored 30 goals across all competitions this season, prompting suggestions he could leave Los Rojiblancos in what could be a huge deal.

In stark contrast to the faltering Eden Hazard, the 25-year old has gone from strength to strength since coming to the fore last season.

Since the end of February alone, he’s notched an impressive 10 goals.

He is understood to be willing to move to the Premier League this summer, though there is said to be concern over whether or not the Les Blues ace could deal with the physical environment.

The two giants of English football are believed to be scouting him further as they consider a move that would likely break the British transfer record.

Would Griezmann be an upgrade on Hazard? Do you think he’s ready for life in the Premier League?
