Chelsea fans are getting excited by the news that their club are in talks with Paul Pogba’s agent. Pogba would cost at least £50million – but would be an incredible addition for the club.
Italian journalist, Di Marzio broke the news that Chelsea had made contact with Pogba’s agent. Barcelona are thought to also be in negotiations for the player, and they may offer over €80million to complete a deal. Surely that would trump any cash offer that Chelsea might have up their sleeves? Manchester City have also made signing Pogba a transfer priority this summer – with Jack Wilshere their back up target.
Some fans have suggested that Pogba’s price tag is a little steep for what he can offer and that the club might be better off investing in Paris Saint Germain’s young midfielder Marco Verratti, who might cost £20million less.

Today alone I've seen: Paul Pogba for £70 million Raheem Sterling for £40 million Antoine Griezmann for £35 million A bit of overkill, no?

Forget Pogba. Verratti-Matic is the perfect 4231 midfield.

I hope we are not linked with Griezmann and Pogba and end up signing Falcao 😭
