Paul Pogba’s representative Mino Raiola has indicated that the player is still open to a move away from Juventus.
This news has triggered speculations among clubs jostling for the star midfielder signature. The 22 year old was heavily linked to Chelsea during last summer transfer window. Although it is widely noted that Barcelona, Manchester United and PSG are also interested in signing the French man.
When quizzed by RMC Sports the agent said:
“All doors are open to all clubs. “For now, the young man decided last summer to stay for a minimum of one year at Juventus.
“We should always respect the will of a player when he chooses with his heart.
“We can’t give figures, but last year Juventus said no to offers of £61m.
“When he left Manchester (United) for Juventus he chose with his heart, and it will be the same with his next club.”
Riaola insinuated that Juventus might accept a fee around £72m making his move one of the top transfers in football.
The player would be a good bargain for Chelsea as he fits into Mourinho master plan. Good in attack and even in defence, we can expect Chelsea to splash a fee for the player.
The powerful midfielder decided to stay put with the Italian Champions after the departure of Pirlo, Tevez and Vidal.
Chelsea might be tempted to offer cash plus player for the midfielder in order to meet up with FFP rules as well as create a space for the player in the team. Out of form Brazilian midfielder Oscar would likely be the player plus cash Chelsea would offer Juve for Pogba services.
