Chelsea have had a formal bid for Paul Pogba turned down by Juventus, according to reports.
It emerged last night that The Blues had launched a formal bid worth around £60million, plus including Juan Cuadrado as part of the deal.
The Colombian has flopped at Stamford Bridge since arriving from Fiorentina back in January, and Jose Mourinho is ready to sell him already, especially after landing Pedro from FC Barcelona.
Mourinho is desperate to sign Pogba this summer in order to add some steal to his first-team, but The Old Lady are reluctant to lose the Frenchman this summer.
The Serie A champions have already lost Arturo Vidal and Andrea Pirlo this summer to Bayern Munich and New York City respectively, so they don’t want to lose the third part of the infamous trio.
Earlier this summer it was reported that Pogba either wants to stay put at Juve, or move to Barcelona when they can sign players again.
However, Chelsea have made the first formal move by offering £60m plus Cuadrado.
Despite the substantial fee and player included, Juve have rejected the offer and are adamant that they won’t be selling the midfielder this summer.
