Stamford Bridge side told to pay big for Juventus starlet.
Chelsea are reportedly preparing a bid for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba but have been informed that the French international would cost them £40m according to the Daily Express.
Though such a price may seem inflated given the fact that the former Man United man is just 20 years of age it is also accurate to describe the box to box performer as being one of the hottest prospects in European football.
Jose Mourinho will no doubt be backed to the hilt financially by Blues owner Roman Abramovich so it wouldn’t be a huge surprise if the West London side made an offer matching Juventus’s valuation.
The Serie A title holders have made good use of Pogba since his arrival from Old Trafford, last term the young battler made 36 appearances in all competitions and has started eight of nine fixtures in Serie A and Champions League this term.
PSG, Arsenal and Real Madrid are also all trailing Pogba who may be seen by Mourinho as a preferable central midfield option to the likes of John Obi Mikel, Michael Essien or even perhaps Ramires.
Pogba offers drive going forward, a genuine goal threat as well as possessing the qualities of top notch defensive midfielder.
