Chelsea to bid for Juventus midfielder

Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba is constantly making headlines since arriving in Turin last summer, after walking away from Manchester United.

Former Red Devils boss, Sir Alex Ferguson, has been criticised for letting the potential future star move to Italy, but Pogba has since revealed that playing for the Serie 'A' outfit had been his childhood dream.

Pogba had trouble breaking into the first-team at Manchester United and chose to follow in fellow Frenchman Zinedine Zidane's footsteps by signing a four-year contract with Juventus.

A string of impressive performances by Pogba in the Juventus shirt along with a few appearances in the French national team have caught the eye of Chelsea boss, Jose Mourinho, according to the London Metro.

The Blues manager has touted Pogba as his primary target for the next transfer window, in a bid to strengthen Chelsea’s midfield line.

As Pogba is only 20 years old, Mourinho is sending out a strong signal that he is looking to build for the future as well.

If the transfer will go ahead, it will make losing Pogba an even tougher blow to take for Manchester United, who have not put much effort into keeping the youngster when they had the chance.

It remains to be seen whether Pogba will strive to achieve European glory in the Juventus shirt or, set childhood dreams aside, he will choose to sign with a side which is collecting European silverware on a regular basis.

Juventus defender, Giorgio Chiellini, told the Italian newspaper Gazzetta Dello Sport: “If someone wants to believe in fairytales and Father Christmas that’s his prerogative.

"When a club is offered an obscene amount of money for a player it’s difficult to say no. No-one can promise that a player will never be sold. Every player has his price, that's just the way it is.”

Chelsea is expected to launch a bid of around 28 million euros in order to sign the French star. The Blues are also reported to be actively looking into the prospect of signing another forward as well during the winter transfer window.
