The 18-year-old Frenchman has alerted a number of rival Barclays Premier League clubs, after talks over a new deal at Old Trafford continues to stall.
But, the youngster's representatives are holding out for a £45,000-a-week deal, for a player who has so far failed to start a game outside the Carling Cup for Manchester United.
Ferguson is dismayed by Pogba's unrealistic wage demands, leading to speculation that Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas is preparing a bid to lure him to west London.
Pogba is just one of three current United stars whose respective futures are in doubt, with Ravel Morrison and first-team striker Danny Welbeck also holding out for new bumper deals.
Chelsea would also be willing to take Welbeck, who is looking to quadruple his current wages to around £60,000-a-week.
