Never mind the reports that you are reading about Chelsea being ready to hijack Liverpool’s signing of Mohamed Salah by offering more money, the player Jose Mourinho has had his eyes on for some time will be the recipient of the cash Chelsea has raked in from the sale of Juan Mata will be Real Sociedad winger Antoine Griezmann according to Britain’s Sun newspaper.
With Chelsea now having their eye’s firmly set on battling Manchester City to win England’s Premier League manager Jose Mourinho thinks that Griezmann could be the player to help him do it.
The French winger has been the subject of rave reviews since helping the la Liga side to a shock top four finish last season.
Despite claims from the Spanish club saying they will reject any offers for their star player in January Mourinho has plenty of money from the sale of Kevin De Bruyne and Juan Mata to help them change their minds.
The 22-year-old Griezmann is valued at £24 million, and it might very well take that kind of money to bring him to England.
