Chelsea join Manchester United in race to sign Griezmann

Published 1 Comments

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is contemplating making a summer move for Real Sociedad's Antonine Griezmann.

Griezmann has been attracting interest from Manchester United and Arsenal in recent months, however the Premier League duo could be trumped by Chelsea.

The Daily Mail suggests Mourinho will compete with Manchester United and Arsenal in the battle to sign the 23-year-old Frenchman.

A number of top European clubs are said to be interested in enticing Greizmann away from Real Sociedad as the attacking midfielder has had an outstanding season for the Basque outfit.

Griezmann has bagged 15 goals in 35 games for Real Sociedad which has led to his inclusion in the French national side.

Mourinho, who has been told he must sell members of his current side before purchasing new players, is also weighing up the possibility of making an official move for Mario Mandzukic and Diego Costa.

Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Samuel Eto'o are all expected to leave Stamford Bridge in the summer.
