Chelsea are set to continue their pursuit of French international Paul Pogba as the club have concerns over the partnership of Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas in the middle of the park.
This has been reported by the London Evening Standard, who claim that the Blues aren't entirely happy with the duo Matic and Fabregas protecting the back-line after the club's stuttering start to the Premier League season.
In just three league games so far, Mourinho's side have already conceded as many as seven goals, and it now appears that they're willing to smash their club-record to secure the services of Pogba from Italian giants Juventus.

In fact, the Standard claim that the Blues could offer as much as £70 million to lure the former Manchester United midfielder away from Turin before the close of the transfer window.
Pogba, of course, is recognised as one of the leading young midfielders in world football, so you can hardly blame Blues officials for attempting to bring him to west London in the near future.
And Pogba really would prove a remarkable signing for Chelsea, as they go in search of success on both the domestic and European scene this term.
Ultimately, with a midfield trio of Pogba, Fabregas and Matic, and a front three of Pedro, Eden Hazard and Diego Costa, the Blues would possess a front six worthy of winning the Champions League.
And Europe's elite competition is one that Mourinho seems determined to win at Stamford Bridge. Of course, the Portuguese tactician has enjoyed success in the tournament throughout his fine career, but he'd no doubt love to win it with Chelsea sooner rather than later. The addition of Pogba would definitely give him and his side a greater chance of doing just that.
