Report: Chelsea weighing up £60m Paul Pogba move

Chelsea are considering launching a £60m bid to sign Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba this summer, according to a report.

Chelsea are reportedly weighing up a £60m swoop for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba.

The France international impressed for the Serie A title winners last season and has continued to enhance his reputation with Didier Deschamps's side at the World Cup.

Jose Mourinho wants the 21-year-old to bolster his midfield options to help his side contend on four fronts again next season.

The Portuguese also sees extra value in his training at former club Manchester United, which aids the club's compliance to UEFA's Financial Fair Play regulations.

Chelsea could launch the bid later this summer but are still considering whether to pay the £60m that Juventus would want for his signature, reports the Daily Mail.

Pogba made 51 appearances for Antonio Conte's side in all competitions last season, scoring nine goals.
