Chelsea may have received a major boost in their pursuit of Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba ahead of the summer transfer window as the Italian giants fly to London for talks over what could become a swap deal involving the Frenchman.
According to CaughtOffside, Juve are chasing the signing of Blues playmaker Oscar, whom they tried to sign before he made the move to Stamford Bridge back in 2012.
Although Oscar has been a key player for Jose Mourinho’s side this season, Chelsea are known to be one of the many admirers of Pogba, and may use Juve’s interest to their advantage here.
Manchester United are another team mentioned in the race for the 22-year-old’s signature, but it looks increasingly likely that Chelsea could succeed in offloading their Brazilian star to land an even bigger name in that part of the pitch.
Pogba started his senior career at Old Trafford but failed to break into the first-team on a regular basis before leaving for Turin in 2012.
