Chelsea are lining up a Â£62million bid for Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann, who will decide his future at the end of the season.
The France international has been a revelation for Atletico this season and his 20 goals have helped Diego Simeone’s men push Real Madrid and Barcelona all the way in the title race.
Only goal difference separates Atletico from leaders Barca with three games remaining, and once the season is over, Griezmann will make a decision on his future.
Atletico are desperate to keep hold of the player, while reports in Spain claim the 25-year-old is also in no rush to leave despite strong interest from Chelsea and Manchester United.
Griezmann will remain focused on Atleti’s title battle for the remainder of the season before making a decision in the summer and he could struggle to turn down Chelsea’s advances, even though Champions League football will not be on the agenda.
