I was against signing Griezmann but I'm starting to warm up to the idea of singing him now. He could be our Neymar.

Not a creator? The guy is more of a goal scorer but hes hardly unable to create chances, he played on the wing for France at the WC and through the majority of his career, wingers primarily create chances apart from Ronaldo these days.

Come on Ronaldo is far more creative than Griezmann.

He's a good player, but I can't see a place for him here. I would like us to a sign a winger who stays at the byline and crosses more often than not. Having said that, there aren't many around.

I can't see where he'd fit here either. Unless we play with no #10 and use him as a second striker just behind Diego.

If Hazard had played like Griezmann did at the biggest stage in club football, his thread would have been crowded with haters all day long!
Luckily Hazard played really well!
Griezmann has fantastic abilities, but i don't want another player at chelsea, who is forced to play out of position.
In my point of view a player like Sterling would fit in nicely with this Chelsea side.

Above all a quality addition in our midfield should be Mourinhos first priority.

Next season i think we will get the best out of Cuadrado and we still have Willian, both players were quite expensive.
I don't want to throw their potential in the trash can!

In 2015, those are called fullbacks.

Well, we don't have good ones.

As far as my Imagination goes, I much rather think he play as the secondary striker with a free role, meaning when counter attacking he is the main threat due to pace and good finishing(Hazard), but can also be a cretive focal. He is a shorter Thomas Muller, knows where to be, at the right time, and in a counter attacking team, would be immense with Hazard and Willian. 30 milion to get him and play something like:
Costa

Griezmann

Hazard

Willian

Marking their duties(Willian's defensive contribution and Hazard's picking the ball at the centre of the field and driving forward).

I don't know if it's just me jumping the bandwagon, but Jose has never been regarded for posesion football, so we are either going to look into work-ethic(Koke/Isco) or sharpeness(Griezmann/ Sterling).
Which isn't bad. Personally, I think, with the price given, Griezmann should be considered, RATHER than Sterling. We can fill the HG quota with a RB that is English(Clyne or Coleman) and Rob Green which would raise our tally.

Both Guardian and Mirror are reporting the exact same stories today: interest in Griezmann, Guaita, Pedro and Varane.

Inclusion of Guaita makes me think someone leaked the story of interests on purpose.

I swear € and £ are so easily replaced by journos in England... £43m is his buyout now??? Lol

No one knows exactly what his buyout figure is. Everything's just speculation, and it could very well be that it's £43M

Put it this way, if its £43M we won't be buying him. There will be a tax associated with that 43m in Spain and that will take it over 50M

Put it this way, we bought Filipe Luis for less than the buyout when everyone expected us to pay the full amount. And we don't know how the club values Griezmann.

I'm 100% certain we will not be buy Griezmann for anything near 43M.

Well that's your opinion, and that wasn't even the point I was making. You assumed the journalist made a mistake with the currency, and I'm saying that you are not necessarily correct.

Its not the first time they've done this and its also not the first time I've seen a price on Griezmann change from € to £ it happens all the time.

Just because some dumb journo made a mistake before, it doesn't mean this guy - who's a respected journalist no less - made the same mistake. How would you feel if people judged you based on some troll's comment on this forum.

they all do it. Go back and look at the Matic transfer, Oscar transfer, Schurrle transfer etc... doesn't matter though I'm able to cut through the bullshit.

What if i told you the same can be said about Marco Reus :eyebrows: :ph34r:

Yup, and Pedro too. I'm not sure about Sterling. Jose like versatile player who could play more than one position. If they are available at a reasonable price, I think we're gonna sign at least one of them.
