Yesterday, here at Vital Chelsea, we covered a piece of speculation inferring that a French World Cup-winning forward could be available on the transfer market.
Our article – now-this-is-a-buy-that-would-seriously-excite-the-chelsea-support – covered the possibility of Chelsea paying €100 million to bring Antoine Griezmann to the club, from Barcelona.
My view was that it would be a move that should if it were to go ahead, we should welcome with open arms.
However, I wasn’t sure that was a view you’d share.
Therefore, what better path to take than to put it to the poll.
Our poll was simply titled:
Antoine Griezmann to Chelsea?
The response proved I was right to put it to the vote with 64% voting for the NO option with only 36% going for the YES option.
I can only concur that in reaching this decision there were fears, such as:
• The size of the transfer fee
• The salary Chelsea would have to pay the player.
• His age.
• Where he’d fit into the side.
• Chelsea would be better spending the €100 million on somebody else.
Please feel free to enlighten me as to why you may have opted against bringing Griezmann to Stamford Bridge.
