Come June 6th, Pogba will be filing out with his teammates as they attempt to beat Barcelona to the Champions League title. And this hasn’t stopped speculations that the French midfield maestro will be leaving Juventus. Already Man City have been touted as favorites to sign him, while Real Madrid are also said to be in contention to sign him. However reports from the Metro claims that Chelsea are now favorites to sign Pogba.
While this might come as a blow to City’s efforts to sign him, Chelsea will none the less be a better alternative. Early last summer, Pogba was photographed playing the Simulation game Football Manager with his team being Chelsea. Though this might just be a coincidence, but with Chelsea now in the race to sign him, there is all likelihood he would be heading to Stamford bridge next season.
Metro reports that Chelsea will be offering Juventus £57 million. After winning the league title this season, Chelsea will certainly be looking to strengthen the team, as focus would be on defending the title and also progressing further in the Champions League. This is why signing Pogba is a must for Chelsea. Young, and already a world class midfielder, Pogba is one for now and for the future.
