Manchester United and Chelsea are hoping to land French midfielder Paul Pogba even when the Juventus’s chief Giuseppe Marotta revealed that the player does not intend to leave Italy in the coming season. While a fee of £70 million could be enough to turn heads across the globe, it is believed that the same would not be enough to land the sensational midfielder.
Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho, who are rumored to be in line for the Chelsea and Manchester United job respectively are long time admirers of Pogba and would be willing to break the bank to make him their first signing at their respective clubs.
“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.The Juventus jersey is something you honour right until the end. It is not a foregone conclusion yet that he will stay at Juventus because nothing is ever guaranteed in football, but it is highly likely that he will stay put”, Morata told ESPNSport in an interview.
Despite various media houses claiming that Chelsea would be subject to a huge clear-out, news emerging from the Stamford Bridge suggests that the likes of Oscar, Matic and Hazard will be given a chance to prove their mettle before a decision regarding their future is made.
