Chelsea: Why Signing Pogba Could Win Jose Another Title
Chelsea are interested in bringing former Manchester United man Paul Pogba to Stamford Bridge, in a move that will reportedly cost the Blues a staggering £60 million - and things could be in their Advanced Stages with the Juventus man spotted in West London this week.
The France international, who impressed in Brazil, would conveniently bypass any Financial Fair Play implications for Chelsea, as he came through a Premier League academy with Manchester United. Similarly to Cesc Fabregas, this would allow Chelsea to strengthen their already bulging squad relatively care-free.
Everyone knows what Pogba's about: big, strong, fantastic on the ball; he tackles and is able to run at pace as well as control the tempo of a game, he also chips in with a bag of wondergoals. What more could you want from a midfielder?
Manchester United were initially keen on bringing Pogba back to Old Trafford, however have been scared off by the hefty asking price placed up on the 21-year-old by Italian giants, leaving Chelsea as his sole Premier League suitor. Jose Mourinho, who is said to also be eyeing Pogba's compatriot and Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala, looks to rebuild with a Chelsea squad that didn't perform to his usual high standards in last year's league campaign.
