Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann is the most wanted man in European football at the moment with all the top sides in Europe interested in signing him.
According to reports, Chelsea are ready to meet the £85million release clause in Griezmann’s contract but Chelsea would face competition from other top sides in Europe including the likes of Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United.
Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone has revealed he isn’t surprised that Chelsea and other top clubs in Europe want Griezmann.
“I don’t tie anybody down, I simply keep working to continue getting better for the sake of the club,” Simeone told a press conference.
“He is in an extraordinary moment, is working well, has got back on the scoresheet and his form is good.
“It is normal that the best teams in the world want him. I am not surprised that the teams who are looking are the ones who can afford him.”
