Could Paul Pogba be tempted in a move to Stamford Bridge…
Read more Chelsea rumours.
Chelsea have not given up hope of signing Juventus and France midfielder Paul Pogba, according to reports in tonight’s London Evening Standard.
The Blues have renewed their interest in the £60m rated midfielder, but the deal seemingly hinges on Pogba’s current club beating Arsenal to the signature of Barcelona star Alexis Sanchez.
As the LES explains: Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, has consistently stated the France international is staying with Juventus, but the Italian champions may be tempted to sell in order to fund summer bids for their top targets.
Juventus have joined Arsenal in the race for Barcelona star Sanchez, who will be sold for £30m, while they also want Real Madrid’s Angel Di Maria and Colombia international Juan Cuadrado from Fiorentina.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has already signed Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa and Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas this summer, spending over £60m in the process, as he looks to build a squad capable of improving on last season’s third place Premier League finish and Champions League semi-final.
The Italian giants are believed to be interested in Chelsea duo Romelu Lukaku and Ramires, and one or both players could potentially be used as makeweights in any possible deal that sees Pogba move to Stamford Bridge.
