Chelsea going back for Paul Pogba
Turning our attention towards Chelsea, who are finding themselves in all sorts of trouble, Jose Mourinho is deciding to go all out in chase of the French midfielder Paul Pogba. Currently at Juventus, Pogba said no to Chelsea when they went after him in the summer transfer window.
However, Chelsea is now hopeful that a Season in turmoil might force Pogba to consider his options once again. With just 3 wins in the opening 9 fixtures of Serie A, Juventus now find themselves ranked 12th in the table amid their worst start to a Serie A season in over a decade.
Pogba is one of the highest sorts after midfielders in Europe currently with both Barcelona and Real Madrid also after his signature. Thus, if Chelsea wants to sign the attacking midfielder, they will have to cough up an amount in the excess of 70-Million Pounds for the Frenchman.
