The Mirror have Chelsea and Manchester City fans looking seriously unimpressed here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that the duo have lost the battle to land Paul Pogba.
The Juventus midfielder is hot property this summer, yet Barcelona seem to be leading the race for the £56 million rated man, with presidential candidate Agusti Benedito already holding talks with the player – despite their transfer ban.
Now as our punters who are by the pool table note, we thought that Pogba could well come to the Premier League, given he has a point to prove after his time at Old Trafford, but it seems the lure of treble winners Barcelona and the Camp Nou has proven too strong for him and we can understand that.
It leaves City and Chelsea having to look elsewhere, although we think it is a bigger blow for the Manchester side than the Champions.
Chelsea fans. Is this the ideal chance to get Ruben Loftus-Cheek into the first team or do you really need to land someone with the calibre of Pogba? Let us know your thoughts below.
