Chelsea have enjoyed quite the transfer window so far, with former Barcelona superstar Cesc Fabregas having already signed for the club, and his international teammate Diego Costa seemingly on his way too.
However, their summer could be about to get even better, with Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba linked with a mega £60 million move to Stamford Bridge. The potential signing, of course, would represent a club-record deal for the Blues, however it would prove a lot more than that.
If Chelsea land Pogba this summer, then they would send a huge message to their rivals, and one rival in particular. Manchester United endured a disastrous campaign under David Moyes last term, and they face the ultimate humiliation if Pogba was to line up alongside John Terry and Co. at the Bridge in 2014/15.
The player they let go for free could be heading back to England for a quite ridiculous fee and, whilst United continue to struggle in the middle of the park, Chelsea would arguably have the best midfield in world football. After all, Nemanja Matic, Fabregas and Pogba could near enough walk into any team in Europe.
There's no doubt about it, Manchester United fans would feel sick to their stomach having to watch Pogba ply his trade in the Blue shirt of Chelsea, whilst the likes of Marouane Fellaini and Tom Cleverley continue to fail at Old Trafford.
But, in truth, Pogba signing for Chelsea could prove even more humiliating for United in the long run. After all, the Red Devils are now playing catch up to Chelsea and Co. after their downfall under Moyes.
And, with Pogba at Chelsea, United would fall further behind their rivals. The French international would near enough complete Chelsea, whilst United appear to be a long way from completion.
Louis van Gaal really has it all to do to help Manchester United return to the summit of the Premier League next season, and he won't want to see another superstar heading to Mourinho's side.
It mustn't happen
From a Manchester United perspective, it just can't happen. It would be 1-0 Chelsea before the season has even started. In fact, it would be 2-0...it could prove a massive psychological blow for Van Gaal's side, and they may never recover.
Manchester United fans just have to pray that Pogba doesn't end up in a Chelsea shirt any time soon, or it could have drastic consequences on their long term ambitions.
