Chelsea fans look seriously depressed here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they hear the latest news from the Daily Express who seem to think Paul Pogba will reject a move to the club.
The France and Juventus star has become one of Jose Mourinho’s top targets this summer and given how good the former Manchester United star is, we cannot say we are all that surprised.
As one of our punters notes over a pint, the fact that Pogba has claimed through his agent that he will be staying at Juventus is a blow for Mourinho – but there may be light at the end of the tunnel yet.
Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola is one of the very best out there, but as our landlord reminds us, that also means he is rather cheeky and can certainly play clubs off against one another.
The comments made by the agent could quite easily be a tool to try and get a better contract for his client, who will cost Chelsea at least £60 million should they wish to land him.
Raiola was asked about his client’s future and noted: “But I can calmly say that his future will still be at Juventus, where he feels very happy.”
Chelsea fans. Do you think this is just a ploy to get a better offer on the table for the 21-year-old star? Let us know your thoughts below.
