Jose Mourinho sees Javier Pastore as Paul Pogba alternative

Chelsea will make a move for Javier Pastore after becoming frustrated with Juventus' £60m price tag on Paul Pogba, reports suggest.

Chelsea are eyeing Paris Saint-Germain's Javier Pastore as an alternative to Paul Pogba, reports suggest.

Jose Mourinho is still keen on former Manchester United midfielder Pogba, but is being put off by Juventus' £60m price tag.

Pastore is said to be available for £25m, and the Argentinian reportedly impressed Mourinho during the Champions League games with Chelsea last season.

Pogba was recently spotted in London, fuelling talk of a move to Stamford Bridge, but agent Mino Raiola told Tuttosport that there have been no negotiations with Chelsea over his player's future and that he is happy in Italy.

"Paul to Chelsea? It's just fantasy football," Riola is quoted as saying by The Express. "Everything is perfect at Juventus and no meetings are planned."

Chelsea begin their Premier League campaign with a trip to new boys Burnley.
