Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann has put Chelsea on alert after admitting he would be open to a move to the Premier League.
The Frenchman, who is set to star for his country in this summer’s European Championships, has had a sterling season for the Spanish club, helping them to within three points of table-topping Barcelona.
Manchester City and Manchester United have both been linked with the Frenchman and could rival Chelsea in the race for his signature, though Griezmann could be swayed towards the champions by the desirable London lifestyle. You can bet on his next club with a matchbook bonus code.
Atletico have no desires to sell their prize asset, who would almost certainly command a fee in excess of the £50 million Chelsea paid for Fernando Torres in 2011, and his price could inflate dramatically should he impress for France, the hosts of UEFA Euro 2016.
Should he join, Griezmann’s arrival could lead to a swift exit for compatriot Loic Remy, who has been offered in excess of £5.5 million a season to move to the Chinese Super League.
