Van Gaal could hand Chelsea the league with £60m failure



Chelsea will attempt to land top Manchester United target Paul Pogba this summer, by offering the Frenchman the most lucrative contract in their history.

Despite having secured a deal for former Arsenal captain Francesc Fabregas earlier this month, one which places him in the top bracket of earners at Stamford Bridge on an estimated £180,000-a-week, Jose Mourinho is reportedly desperate to land Pogba before the start of next season as he wants to pair him with January addition Nemanja Matic.

Now is claiming that Roman Abramovich will consent to breaking the bank by way of consenting to the young Frenchman being offered even more than Fabregas, meaning he’s prepared to
make Pogba Chelsea’s highest earner.

Pogba’s ability Much has been made over Pogba’s ascension to the summit of the footballing pyramid since his move to
Juventus, but for once none of it is the product of fans overestimating a player. The 21-year-old has established himself as one of Europe’s best midfielders this season, and his influence in the middle of the park has been of great benefit to both Juventus and France.

Capable of operating in a deep position protecting the back four or alternatively further up the pitch as support for the attacking units, there really isn’t much Pogba hasn’t excelled at since United allowed him to leave the club back in 2012.

Interest from United

What makes any potential deal all the more interesting is the fact that United are clamouring to re-sign the man they once waved goodbye to. Recent speculation infers that Louis van Gaal has placed Pogba amongst his most desired targets for the summer, and that the Red Devils would be ready and
willing to pay the mooted £60million it would take for Juve to consider letting him leave Italy.{GMS}
