Our resident Chelsea supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are looking at the news coming in from Tuttosport via Metro with delight – as the publication suggests that the Blues are working on a deal to sign Juventus’ Paul Pogba in the summer.
This news has certainly caused a fracas here in the Transfer Tavern, with a plethora of Chelsea fans off to the bar to order some shots in celebration!
As our landlord exclaims, the £85m-rated central midfielder is undoubtedly one of the best midfielders in world football at the age of 22, and would be a sensational coup for the west London outfit in the summer.
It remains to be seen who will be in charge of the Stamford Bridge club come the summer, but murmurs here in the Tavern are that Antonio Conte will be the main man at the club come next season, but that is just gossip here in the Tavern!
Our resident Chelsea fans agree with the landlord and say Pogba would become a club legend at Chelsea, and would become an influential figure at Stamford Bridge moving forwards.
