Jose Mourinho hints Paul Pogba transfer is impossible

Published 8 Comments

Jose Mourinho has admitted that Chelsea are interested in Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, but has hinted that landing him is near enough impossible, reports the Daily Mail. 

Comparing the French international to the Eiffel Tower, the Blues chief, who has already landed Radamel Falcao in this transfer window, believes that the club will have to improve without signing some of the world's greatest players. 

Pogba, of course, is recognised as one of the world's leading midfielders, and has unsurprisingly been the subject of interest from a number of elite clubs of late.

Manchester United - the player's previous club - have been linked with his signature, while Spanish giants Barcelona are seemingly ready to bring him to La Liga sooner rather than later.

It appears, though, that he won't be heading to west London, as Mourinho stated: "I think everybody has an interest in Pogba.

"But there are things you can do and things you cannot do. I love the Eiffel Tower but I can’t have the Eiffel Tower in my garden. I can’t even have the Eiffel Tower of Las Vegas. We feel we have the tools to improve our team without that. And the tools are ourselves.

Rivals are lucky

One thing's for sure, Chelsea's Premier League rivals will be quite pleased about Mourinho's Pogba admission.

Ultimately, if the Blues had secured the services of the Juventus man in this transfer window, then they'd have one of the most formidable midfields in world football. 

A trio of Cesc Fabregas, Nemanja Matic and Pogba would no doubt cause havoc, so the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal and Co. will be pleased that the Blues won't be landing him anytime soon. Chelsea, though, even without Pogba, remain the team to beat ahead of the 2015/16 campaign.
