Transfer Imminent – Chelsea's £165k-A-Week Target Meets Club Director


Paul Pogba is certainly on his way out of Juventus this summer. European giants have been monitoring his situation, and doing their best to convince him to join their club. Links to Barcelona, Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea, and Manchester City, Pogba will be able to choose which club suits him the best. Being only 22 years of age, and already one of the best center midfielders in the world, Pogba is bound to have a storied career, regardless of which club he joins this summer. He has been very successful at Juventus this season, and his international career for France has been top notch also.

Recently, Spanish newspaper Sport ( as reported by Espn ), reported that Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, has held a crucial meeting with Barcelona’s new director, Ariedo Braida. If Barcelona can get their transfer ban lifted by June 30, then expect Paul Pogba to be playing alongside Leonel Messi, Neymar, and Luis Suárez next season. If they do not get their transfer ban lifted, then they are encouraged to reach an agreement in principle with a permanent move in 2016.

Chelsea has been being linked to Paul Pogba for quite some time now.  The rumors gained pace a few weeks ago, when Juventus began to enquire about signing Chelsea man, Oscar this summer. If Juventus is actually interested in signing the Brazilian, then he could be used in a swap deal, plus cash, for Pogba. If Juventus favor’s a move to Chelsea for Pogba that would certainly help Mourinho in trying to lure the Frenchman to Stamford Bridge. Since Oscar could be sold for something around £30million, and Pogba has a reported price tag of about £52million, and reports are saying that Barcelona are not willing to go beyond that price.

So Mourinho could be looking at a deal that would send Oscar and £22million to Juventus, in return for Paul Pogba. A deal I personally would love to see, after Oscar has proved once again that he is not consistent enough to play for Chelsea, virtually disappearing every season after Christmas. After selling Juan Mata to Manchester United to clear way for Oscar, he has not impressed, and will likely pay the price for it this summer.
