Neymar urges £80m Chelsea target to join him at Barcelona

Barcelona star Neymar has urged Juventus ace Paul Pogba to snub the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City and join him at the Nou Camp instead, according to reports from talkSPORT.

Pogba has been heavily linked with a move away from the Juventus Stadium the past few transfer windows, with a host of elite European clubs keen on the highly-coveted France international.

Just 23-years-old, Pogba has won the Serie A title three years in succession and helped Juve to the Champions League final against Barca last year, also being selected in the FIFA World XI back in January.

This has seen a host of Premier League clubs such as Chelsea, Man City, and former side Manchester United keen on his services, but Brazil superstar Neymar has spoken highly of Pogba on Barcelona’s official website, stating that he would fit well with the current European champions.

“He is young, and I like how he plays,” Neymar said.

“I like how he does things. I would love to swap shirts with him, and I think he would fit well at Barcelona.”

Pogba, valued at £80million, has made 42 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring eight goals and supplying 12 assists.
