La Liga giants prepare for exit of Chelsea and Man United target

Atletico Madrid are preparing for the exit of reported Manchester United target Antoine Griezmann, according to the Daily Express.

The French striker, who had previously been linked with Chelsea, has been the subject of intense speculation surrounding his future in the Spanish capital.

Reports in Spain suggest that Diego Simeone is considering replacements as they brace themselves for a mega bid in the summer.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho revealed recently that he did not intend to be active in the January market, but a move for the 24-year old could be on the cards come the end of the season.

Atleti boss Simeone is reportedly considering Thiago Alcantara and Nicolas Gaitan as replacements for the former Real Sociedad forward.

Bayern Munich are also understood to be keen on the Les Blues international, if Arjen Robben does indeed join Manchester United.

Circulating reports over the past few days have seen talk of an Old Trafford switch for the Dutchman increase, as the 32-year old has become disillusioned with his role in Bavaria.
