Chelsea target Antoine Griezmann as Juan Mata replacement?

Chelsea want to sign Antoine Griezmann as a replacement for Manchester United-bound Juan Mata, according to a report.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho wants to sign Antoine Griezmann as a replacement for Juan Mata, according to a report.

With the Spanish midfielder on the verge of joining Manchester United for £37m, The Sun claims that Mourinho will use part of that money to recruit Griezmann from Real Sociedad.

The 22-year-old attacker recently said that he would be willing to join "a leading European team" to enhance his chances of playing for France at the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil in the summer.

Griezmann has scored 12 goals in 18 La Liga matches for Sociedad so far this season.
