SUPERBOOM! Chelsea have offered 120m€ to Juventus for Pogba! Juve not keen to sell, but understand they won’t get more

Defending Premier League champions Chelsea did not have a fairytale start to their title defending campaign as theyw drew against Swansea City in the opening match of the new season and lost to league giants and title rivals Manchester City 3-0.
The hammering defeat stirred the Blues’ setup as they entered the transfer market with great energy. The first deal they cracked was to hijacj Manchester United’s deal for Pedro and signing the Spaniard.
Now, according Palmeri, the club are ready to place humongous bid for French youngster Paul Pogba. Pogba has previously played in the Premier League in 2012 when he was a part of their squad. Paul Pogba came up through United’s youth setup but left the club at a tender age of 19. He grew up to be a great player at the Bianconeri and is now a highly rated midfielder in the world.
Manchester United were linked with a move for the their former player earlier this summer. Manchester City too were initally keen on signing the player, but Juventus stood strong on their ground and denied offers from any club.
Though Juventus has rejected the idea of selling the youngster several times, the La Gazzetta delo Sport journaist believes that the Italian champions will not get more than what Chelsea are ready to offer. This might actually change the mind of Juventus people.
If Paul Pogba actually joins the club in this summer, Chelsea will become the best team on paper in England and a serious title contender at the UEFA Champions League.
For now we will have to wait for an official confirmation from either parties and see if the deal materialises.
