Transfer Balls: Chelsea undercut Barcelona’s winning Pogba bid
Transfer Balls salutes the work of the Daily Mail which today reports that Chelsea have tabled a £54million bid for Paul Pogba. Juventus saw the bid and rejected it.
The paper than adds that Chelsea won’t get Pogba anyhow.
Barcelona held formal talks in June with Juventus over Pogba and believe they have an option for signing the 22-year-old next summer with the valuation set at around £73million.
So how can Chelsea have hoped to by the former Manchester United player for less then the £73m Barcelona had set aside?
And earlier the Mail said that Barcelona had seen a bid or £57m rejected – still more than chela’s bid.
And what of the part about Manchester City giving up on Pogba? That’s odd because the Mail told us the Citizens had £70m earmarked for the Frenchman.
Such are the facts in the Daily Mail.
