Transfer Balls: Chelsea chase Antoine Griezmann in a human centipede of tabloid news
Transfer Balls: The Daily Star has been talking about Chelsea FC. It has a scoop.
Chelsea Transfer News: £40m demand, flying in to seal deal, Griezmann approved
The £40m player is Everton’s John Stones. Have Everton placed a £40 price tag on the player’s head? No. It’s utter balls.
The other part of the headline – the bit about Griezmann – goes like this:
The Metro say that Abramovich has personally given the green light to the signing of Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann.
The pisspoor Metro? The paper that feeds news to the now awful Daily Telegraph? If that’s your only source, you’ve got no story. But we’ll take a look – so you don’t have to:
Antoine Griezmann targeted by Chelsea as Roman Abramovich sanctions transfer bid
Some WOW! that the Metro’s Will Giles should have a direct line to the private and secretive Roman Abramovich.
Antoine Griezmann is reportedly set to be targeted by Chelsea once again in the transfer window, with Roman Abramovich sanctioning an opening bid for the Atletico Madrid winger.
Reported by whom?
According to the Daily Star, however, Chelsea are set to move for the France international once more after the Blues’ Russian owner sanctioned a £21million opening bid.
Yeah! The Star’s scoop is sourced in a Metro scoop that was sourced in the Daily Star. It’s a human centipede of transfer balls!
