Earlier in the day, a journalist based in Italy also caused an uproar after posting a tweet saying that the English champions have submitted €120m (£87m) bid for the former Manchester United midfielder.
SUPERBOOM! Chelsea have offered 120m€ to Juventus for Pogba! Juve not keen to sell, but understand they won't get more— Tancredi Palmeri (@tancredipalmeri) August 21, 2015
Which of these reports are we going to believe? It seems a Chelsea deal is likely for the young midfielder who is one of the most sought after player during this summer window.
Will Juventus allow it? After losing Pirlo and Vidal? Is it a risk worth taking or will they rather cash in now that Chelsea are desperate to strengthen their team? A lot of questions left to be answered...
If the English champions complete this deal, they will be stronger than last season with Matic pairing Pogba in midfielder, a scary combination rival teams will not like to play against.
