Paul Pogba has fuelled transfer rumours after he was spotted in Chelsea today with reports suggesting that he could be about to sign for the Blues.

The talented youngster is now enjoying some downtime following France's exit from the World Cup at the quarter-final stage - and it seems his first port of call was west London.

Big-money signings

Chelsea are believed to be keen on snapping up the former Manchester United ace, who joined Juventus two seasons ago, but will be forced to cough up €60 million in order to get their man. The Blues are no strangers when it comes to spending big, and have already splashed the cash for Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas this summer.

Pogba has established himself as perhaps the most sought-after young player in Europe after two fine campaigns with Juventus, while he also a key figure in France's run to the World Cup quarter-finals.

Transfer tussle

It's not just Chelsea who are in the running for his signature however - the likes of Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are also said to be chasing him.

But it seems as though the Blues have the upper hand in this particular battle after the 21-year-old was pictured near Chelsea's Stamford Bridge home on Thursday. It is the second clear hint he's dropped that he could be joining Chelsea this summer - after he was spotted playing as Mourinho's men on the popular game Football Manager.

Reports suggest that Juventus are reluctantly willing to let Pogba leave, but only for a sizeable fee, while the future of Arturo Vidal will also likely impact on where the Frenchman will be playing next term.

Double boost

The duo form the heart of one of the most feared midfields in Europe alongside Andrea Pirlo, but reports suggest that one of them will be sold. Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United have all been linked with a move for Vidal, who will cost £40 million, but Juventus are highly unlikely to see both. 

If Pogba does indeed join Chelsea, then it would no doubt impress the club's fans that they were able to sign one of the world's best players while also derailing Manchester United's transfer plans.
