- Reporter asks Antoine Griezmann question in French via Google Translate.
- Griezmann could be set to leave Atletico Madrid after the World Cup.
- The Frenchman has been linked with a move to Chelsea in the past.
- Have a look at the hilarious video at the bottom of the article!
Whether or not Chelsea will make a move to sign Antoine Griezmann this summer remains to be seen. We have been linked with the Frenchman in the past, who is thought to be on his way out of Atletico Madrid this summer.
Barcelona and Manchester United are widely considered the frontrunners to sign Griezmann, should he opt to depart the Wanda Metropolitano after the World Cup. Chelsea could find themselves in need of a new striker this summer, should Alvaro Morata depart. If the opportunity arises to sign Griezmann, it shouldn’t be passed up.
As is the nature of the football world, when a player of his quality is on the move – it’s headline news. Journalists worldwide are keen to know his further destination, especially the Spanish, who have followed him closely throughout his entire career.
With Griezmann set to compete for this year’s World Cup in Russia, he held a press conference as a representative of the French football association. The press officer bizarrely requested that questions were only posed to the 27-year-old in French, attempting to deny Spanish reporters to ask him about his future.
He should have known better. Spanish journalists are some of the best, and craftiest, in the world – and this one proved it at the press conference. He used Google Translate to ask Griezmann a question about his future in his native language. The press officer was not a happy man. Have a look at this, it’s hilarious!
