Chelsea’s chance of signing Juventus midfilder Paul Pogba seems to have been given a major boost after reports from Italy claims the Old Lady are finding it difficult to keep the midfield power house.
According to Daily Mail, Juventus director general Giuseppe Marotta had given hint that the French international star pogba could leave the Old Lady this summer.
“Pogba’s future? In modern football the decision of the player is paramount, like with (Carlos) Tevez.
“It’s obvious that we would like to keep him until he stops playing.
“However, we can’t afford to do anything crazy in terms of salaries and some clubs can guarantee twice as much as us.”
Out of favour Columbia international star Juan Cuadrado has been a major target for the Italian giants and Chelsea could use him in a player plus cash deal to secure Pogba’s signature.
Chelsea failed to reach the semi final of the UEFA Champions League last season and should they sign Pogba this summer, the Blues would be the team to beat.
Pogba was initially a major target for Real Madrid, Barcelona and the Blue side of Manchester but the later has since pulled out of the race after the purchase of Raheem Sterling and Fabian Delph for a reported £49m and £8m fee respectively.
