Chelsea ready £60m mega move

Chelsea are plotting a stunning £60m move for Paul Pogba, even though the Frenchman is closing in on a new contract at Juventus, according to reports from The Express.

The rangy ex-Manchester United trainee has emerged as one of the very best young midfielders on the planet since joining the Old Lady in 2012, winning two Serie A titles and a spot in Les Bleus’ set-up.

His displays are understood to have attracted attention from the Blues, but despite his agent coming out and branding the rumours as “fantasy football”, the Londoners are readying a swoop.

Juve are in talks with the 21-year-old regarding a new deal, however Jose Mourinho is keen to gazump them.

Chelsea can offer Pogba a much greater salary than he can expect in Turin, yet it’s unclear if this will be a big enough lure for the player.

The starlet was pictured in London last week, fuelling talk of a move to Chelsea, but these claims were swiftly denied.

The player himself has also been spotted using the Football Manager video game with himself in the Premier League giants’ team.
