Real Sociedad ace Antoine Griezmann has given Chelsea and Manchester United a boost in their pursuit of his signature, reports talkSPORT

The French winger has hinted that he could be open to a move away from the Spanish outfit in the summer and this could open the door to a move to England.

Reportedly Blues boss Jose Mourinho is a big fan of the 22-year-old who has a £25 million buyout clause. Griezmann's latest fine performance came in his side's 4-0 victory over Elche last night as he struck a hat-trick. 

However if Chelsea are going to get their hands on the winger then they may have to go head-to-head with Manchester United boss David Moyes for the player's services. 

Moyes seems keen on further improving his squad at the Red Devils and is expected to invest in his side further in the summer. 

And it appears Griezmann could be open to a move away from Sociedad  after that he told Spanish newspaper AS: "I am very well at Real Sociedad, I am calm, I want to finish the year here and then we’ll see."

It remains to be seen as to whether Chelsea or Manchester United will step up their pursuit of the Frenchman over the coming months. 

For now through both Chelsea and Manchester United's immediate attention will turn to their Premier League fixtures tonight and tomorrow.

Chelsea play host to West Ham United at Stamford Bridge tomorrow night, meanwhile Manchester United take on Cardiff City at Old Trafford this evening.
