Chelsea are planning to test Juventus’ resolve for Paul Pogba.
The Mail on Sunday says Chelsea are considering stumping up the staggering £60million Juventus want for Pogba. The Londoners are putting together the most lucrative package in the club’s history to entice the highly rated France midfielder, who is valued at around €75 million by Juventus.
Manchester United, who had Pogba as a scholar, want to re-sign him – but not at that price. Pogba has been impressive during France’s run to the last 16 of the World Cup in Brazil where they take on Nigeria in Brasilia on Monday.
However, Chelsea see the 21-year-old France international as a good investment, not least because his Premier League academy status, just like Cesc Fabregas, helps the club conform to UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules.
