Revealed: How close Chelsea were to landing record-breaking deal

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.

Speaking to CalcioMercato, Raiola said: “Paul could have left last year because Mourinho – then at Chelsea – really wanted him.”

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.”

Very interesting!

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…
