It has been reported that Chelsea failed in a bid to land Paul Pogba last summer- a bid which would have been a club record.
After winning the league last season, Jose Mourinho was keen to bolster his midfield with some high calibre players, and so went to the extent to offer Juventus a staggering £74million for the French international player.
This occurred after the blues were failing to land any player on their wish list over the summer, so decided that a big money move for the Frenchman was the way to go.
The last time that Chelsea forked out a considerable amount of money was the £50million fee paid for Fernando Torres back in 2011.
Juve Chief keen on Pogba staying:
When Juventus Chief Giuseppe Marotta was questioned on the matter, he said: “Pogba is a Juventus player and still has an ongoing contract with us.
“Plus he has also told us about his intention to stay with us. All the conditions are there for him to continue with Juventus for the upcoming years.”
Pogba’s current deal with the Italian champions runs until 2019.
Manchester City and Manchester United are still said to have the 23 year old on the radar.
