The Chelsea fans who’ve had little to shout about this season are now over the moon in the Transfer Tavern following reports in the Daily Mirror (via Radio Rai) that Juventus are open to the idea of doing business with the Blues.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know that former Juventus boss Antonio Conte is set to arrive at Stamford Bridge as the long-term (ish) successor to Jose Mourinho with the club.
Naturally, the fallen champions of England have been linked with a plethora of Italian and Italian based players in keeping with his broad knowledge of such matters.
Though not from Italy, Paul Pogba rose to prominence under the stewardship of the 46-year old and established himself as one of the best midfielders in the world.
The former Manchester United youngster has been linked with a mega money move to the Blues, as well as a number of top teams across the continent.
Now, a chief behind the scenes with the Old Lady has revealed the dominant Serie A champions are indeed open to the notion of transfer dealings with the West London giants.
‘We and Chelsea respect each other,” director Beppe Marotta told Radio Rai.
‘We’re proud that Conte is now their manager, as five years ago we took a risk on him against many odds.’
‘I hope we can make some transfer dealings with Chelsea in the future.’
Just how game changing a signing is Pogba to Chelsea should they manage to pull it off?
