Talks between the clubs looked to have collapsed only days before the transfer market shut for the year.

But Atletico’s move for former star Antoine Griezmann from Barcelona led the LaLiga champions back to the negotiating table.

Und Chelsea have now confirmed their second major transfer of the summer, following the arrival of Romelu Lukaku.
