Chelsea are brewing up a £50million move involving Juventus playmaker Paul Pogba in the upcoming transfer window, claims Italian sports news agency SportMediaSet.
The French international, who took a leap of faith in 2012 when he was still a reserve at Old Trafford, is a key figure in Turin in the current campaign, a creative force in the middle of the park, finding the right guys 15 times that led to goals, while also having a knack for finding the back of the net with 9 put-aways.
His stocks has since risen and is now at an all-time high, while remaining a favourite to suit up for Didier Deschamps squad that will play in the World Cup finals in Brazil.
Pogba, 21, is tied with the Old Lady until 2016 and it is understood that the club hierarchy believes that this summer is the best time to make huge profit out of the wonder kid.
