Here in the Football Transfer Tavern, we know Jose Mourinho is special. However, even he may well struggle to bring £40 million rated Paul Pogba to Stamford Bridge this January.
The Juventus midfielder is one of the brightest prospects in football and is not far from being the finished article. Since leaving Manchester United, he has seen his stock rise so highly, that now half of Europe are chasing after him.
The only reason certain clubs are not getting involved in the race is because they can’t afford him! As our landlord notes, he is still so young and has so much to give, meaning that whoever lands him now will have a world class player on their hands for seasons to come.
Jose Mourinho wants that to be him, but as we know with the Special One, he always has not only a plan A, but a B and C as well.
With that in mind, we have taken some time out of our schedule – which only really involved playing pool and eating one of the tavern’s special burgers – and have begun to compile a list of potential alternatives for Mourinho and Chelsea.
