Serie A ace Chelsea’s top target this summer, record-breaking bid expected

Chelsea manager-in-waiting Antonio Conte has made Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba his top summer target and will make a record-breaking move to sign the Frenchman according to The Sun.

The Blues are expected to see major changes in personnel once the Italian trainer arrives at Stamford Bridge following Euro 2016, with a host of new arrivals expected in West London.

Chelsea put in a dire performance in defending their Premier League title in 2015-16 and as such a number of current players are expected to pay the price and be sold.

Pogba and Conte have an excellent working relationship from their mutual time together in Turin, with the ambitious manager bringing the star to Italy from Manchester United.

The France international played a key role in Juve’s success under Conte and the Italy boss now wants to reunite at Chelsea.

A fee in the region of £76 million is expected to be needed for the Blues to win the race to sign Pogba, as Real Madrid and Barcelona are also circling.
