More disappointment for the Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern…
It was speculated in the Football Transfer Tavern that Chelsea were in for now-Man United ace Paul Pogba – but nobody was aware just how close the deal came to becoming reality.
For the first time, Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, has opened up about the deal – and has revealed that the Blues could have signed the Frenchman last season.
Discussing the reason as to why the deal did not happen – it was simply a matter of a gentleman’s agreement: “Juventus and I had agreement: win the league title and the Champions League, then he can go.”
So it wasn’t an issue of transfer fee or Paul Pogba not wanting to join the Blues – it was simply because the Frenchman had unfinished business in Turin.
You would expect that the Blues were back in for him over the summer – so that just proves how much of a draw Mourinho is to top European players.
Often, wherever Mourinho goes – the best players follow.
This has disappointed the Chelsea fans in the Tavern…
