Top striker rules out move to Chelsea

GriezmannChelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern haven’t had too much to celebrate this season and they’ve ordered another round in commiseration after more disappointment today.

Talksport quote Chelsea target Antoine Griezmann as ruling out a move to the Premier League, as he stated he’s extremely happy in the Spanish capital with Atletico Madrid.

“I do not feel the need to play in Ligue 1, nor the Premier League or in Serie A. I am in Spain- I’m happy. Life here, football, I like it all.”

Griezmann had been touted as a high-profile recruit for Chelsea in January as they attempt to turn their fortunes around after a disastrous start to the season, where the Blues have suffered ten defeats in all competitions and sit just two points above the Premier League’s relegation zone.

With Diego Costa, Radamel Falcao and Loic Remy all misfiring in West London this season, Griezmann would have been the perfect addition for Chelsea and our Blues fans are choking back tears after hearing his comments.

Chelsea fans, would Griezmann save your season? Let us know in the comments below!
