Chelsea have gone from being passive in the transfer window to being one of the most aggressive teams due to a slow start to their 2015-16 season.
They are continuing to go after Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, but it will not be easy to land him as the Daily Express reports that he is seeking a five-year contract worth £82.5m.
The Blues are also expected to have to pay a £72m transfer fee for the French international, which would bring the total spend to a whopping £154.5m.
The deal that Pogba wants would equate to about £318,000-per-week, which would give him an annual salary of £16.5m.
Pogba is one of the best midfielders in the world, which makes it all the more crazy to think that Manchester United got rid of him for nothing in 2012.
