Chelsea consider dwarfing other signings with €74m bid – report
You ever quite know what is up Jose Mourinho’s sleeve. We assumed that, after singing Cesc, he would concentrate the rest of the kitty on strikers.
But latest reports suggest that Chelsea could be preparing to follow up on their long term interest in the player by making a mega bid for one of the stars of The World Cup.
The Daily Mail says:
Chelsea are considering stumping up the staggering £60million (€74m) Juventus want for Paul Pogba.
Manchester United, who had Pogba as a scholar, want to re-sign him – but not at that price.
However, Chelsea see the 21-year-old France international as a good investment, not least because his Premier League academy status, just like Cesc Fabregas, helps the club conform to UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules.
There is no doubt that Pogba would improve any side in the world. The question is, with so many creative midfielders in the squad already, where would you play the lad?
We think that he’s best suited to an attacking midfield role where he can employ his wonderful shooting boots. But he is an adaptable player and loves to go box-to-box. He’s the sort of guy who can take games by the scruff of the neck.
So perhaps Jose would find a starting role for him alongside Nemanja Matic in Chelsea’s preferred 4-2-3-1 formation.
Providing his defensive duties didn’t blunt his attacking prowess Chelsea could be looking at a season defining signing – if they are prepared to stump up all that cash.
Let’s take a look at the lad in action. Chelsea fans – is Pogba worth the cash or would you prefer to spend it on a striker or two?
