Excitingly gifted Frenchman confirms Chelsea interest in getting swoop done?

Reports have revealed that Atletico Madrid forward and long-term Chelsea target Antoine Griezmann has revealed that the Spanish champions were the only club to show serious interest in him last summer.

The France international ended his nine-year association with Real Sociedad in July to join Atleti in a deal worth around €30m.

When asked about interest from clubs other than Atletico last summer, he told Spanish newspaper AS: “That I don’t know, because I only spoke with Atleti. After my first contract with [sporting director] Andrea [Berta] and [CEO Miguel Angel] Gil Marin, I said: ‘I have to go there. They want me, yes or yes.’”
