Italian international boss Antonio Conte has told Chelsea that he wants to bring Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba with him should he take the manager’s job at the end of the season, according to the Daily Mail.
The 46-year-old is one of the leading candidates to become Jose Mourinho’s long-term successor at Stamford Bridge, and is expected to depart the national team after Euro 2016 this summer.
The report claims that Conte has already held talks with the Chelsea hierarchy and is set for further talks over the coming months, with one of the notes on the agenda being their transfer policy, where he told the Blues that he wants to bring Pogba to London with him.
Pogba was one of the key negotiating points during their first meeting, as Conte is keen to reunite with the France international having first brought him to Juventus in 2012.
Conte also feels he can convince Pogba to head for west London due to their close relationship whilst in Turin.
