Chelsea Favorites To Sign Paul Pogba After Abramovich Steps In


The summer transfer window that opens in some 6 or more weeks’ time has had a player singled out as its main talk. Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has been a transfer targets of several Europe’s big clubs, most notably PSG, Real Madrid, Manchester city, Barcelona and Chelsea (of course). But it has been a tight race for them all, and Pogba has refused to feed the press with comments.

PSG were reportedly planning to make an upset when the club’s official and President met with the player, with the sole aim of luring him back home. But as it stands at the moment, Chelsea are most favorites to win his signature, as Juventus haven’t been able to convince the 22 year-old former Manchester United midfielder to continue staying in the club. A fee of 58 million pounds has been finalized as his buying price, and any club willing to buy can come by summer transfer. Chelsea remains the first out of the pack that will be doing this. Abramovich has reportedly step in to ensure Chelsea signs the Frenchman.

Other top competitions, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain aren’t willing to meet such a high fee, and the road is all clear for the blues to go ahead. The special one is confident that club owner, Roman Abramovich would give a go-ahead for spending such huge fees on the talented whiz. Chelsea hopes to build a more-formidable squad towards the coming campaign, and getting quality players for such a high price is a price they seem willing to pay as they seek success on the continental level too.

Pogba whose current deal with the Turin’s Old lady ends in 2016, has been on solid form in recent years for both club and country. The France international has gone ahead to appear 85 times in the Serie A, with 19 goals to his credit in a span of 3 seasons. His midfield prowess have been key in the winning of the league for the club consecutively. Mourinho hopes he will be able to reenact these features in the heart of the Chelsea midfield next season, as they will come handy.
