Barcelona are reportedly looking to offload Griezmann in quest to raise funds to shoulder wage bills
Chelsea are named one of the suitors looking to take advantage of Barcelona current financial situation with Griezmann on the line.
It’s believed the Frenchman could be leaving the club in order to make some space on the wage bill.
Griezmann is linked also to a move back to Atletico Madrid but no official procedure has begun yet which still places him on the front page for Chelsea’s striking need.
Rumors have it that the former Atletico Madrid forward is considered wanted by Blues who have so far failed to land Erling Haaland.
Chelsea being on the race only puts them up against Atletico Madrid which appears to be the more probable destination for Griezmann.
Following recent statement from Atléti president, Cerezo, it’s now believed Chelsea are less likely to materialize a deal as the President pointed towards excitement if Griezmann returns.
“In the world of football anything is possible. No one knows what the outcome of these negotiations will be,” Cerezo said.
“Griezmann back? If that happens, it will be a pleasant surprise… you will soon know something”, told Deportes Cuatro.
Neither Chelsea nor Atlético Madrid have submitted bid for Griezmann but something is likely to happen soon.
