Chelsea are planning a deadline day move for Manchester United starlet Paul Pogba, according to The Mirror.

The former La Havre midfielder is in the final year of his contract at Old Trafford, and is yet to pen an extension.

Instead of running down his deal with the Premier League champions, United could cash in on Pogba in the January transfer window, with a fee of around £3 million linked with his signature.

The reports suggests that Sir Alex Ferguson is reportedly fuming at Pogba's camp, following the rejection of a new deal.

The Frenchman is yet to break into the United first-team, having only featured in the Carling Cup this term, but his ability, which has attracted interest from Manchester City, Arsenal, Juventus and AC Milan, is behind the reason for Ferguson wanting to retain Pogba.

Andre Villas-Boas has pledged to make one more signing in the January transfer window, after bringing in Gary Cahill from Bolton Wanderers, however, after being heavily linked with a move for Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Willian.

However, unlike Willian, Pogba would be free to feature in the Champions League for Chelsea, who face Napoli in the last-16, as United contemplate a campaign in the Europa League.
