Frenchman claims it wasn’t the right time
Juventus star Paul Pogba has revealed why he decided to snub a move to Premier League champions Chelsea.
The Blues offered Juve just shy of £70million in order to sign the powerhouse midfielder, and after the Serie A side accepted the bid, it looked like a deal was set to be finalised.
However, Pogba decided otherwise and rejected the chance to join Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge despite being offered a contract worth around £8.5m-a-year.
As it’s been revealed in a recent study, Pogba is currently on around £65k-a-week in Turin, but a mega pay-rise didn’t persuade him to leave the club this summer.
Speaking in a recent interview, Pogba admitted that the time wasn’t right to move and that’s why he decided to stay put.
