Spanish media outlets have made a bold claim as regards the transfer Antoine Griezmann to Chelsea from Atletico Madrid in January. The media outlets reported that a verbal agreement has been reached and the transfer will be finalized any moment from now as soon as the two clubs put pen to paper and the 24-year completes his medical.
Chelsea FC were linked to the France international all through the summer as Chelsea technical director Nigerian-born Michael Enemalo was seen several times in Spain. Despite that Griezmann signed new deal at Vicente Calderon just few months ago, Chelsea are still ready to buy him at an inflated price as they look to strengthen their attacks with the flair and skill of this attacking midfielder.
Antoine Griezmann joined the Madrid-based club in the summer of 2014 after their impressive league victory from Real Sociedad. The transfer fee Atletico Madrid is said to be worth €30 million. He scored 42 goals in 179 appearances for Real Sociedad and has also netted 30 times in 52 games for Atletico Madrid. His goal ratio and general contributions to team for his former and present clubs have shown that he is the kind of player that Chelsea need in a hard time like this.
Antoine Griezmann, who plays regularly for France senior team, could be Chelsea player by the beginning of the New Year. If this is finalized, it could signal an end to all the rumors linking Alex Teixeira to Chelsea as the two players play almost the same position.
