According to reports, both Paul Pogba and Fabio Capello have opened the door for moves to Chelsea. Or at least they’ve not closed the door.
In a new regular feature, we take a look at the day’s rumours involving Chelsea, separating the wheat from the chaff to save you the trouble…
Paul Pogba offers Chelsea and Man City renewed transfer hope after dismissing Barca move (Daily Express)
Juventus star Pogba is arguably the most sought-after player in Europe, but reports recently suggested he had as good as agreed a move to the Nou Camp.
However, the France international’s agent Mino Raiola has confirmed no agreement has been made with the Spanish giants.
“We said no to several teams, and continue to move forward, judging the moment,” Raiola told GR Parlamento.
“We can’t say that Pogba will leave after this season, he could stay another year at Juventus. We don’t have a pre-agreement with anyone.
“When the right project comes along at the right time for everyone then we could leave, but an agreement has to be reached with Juventus first.”
The news will indeed give Chelsea and Manchester City a glimmer of hope they can acquire Pogba’s services. But as all football fans know, it’s the hope that kills you.
Fabio Capello open to taking Chelsea job if Jose Mourinho is sacked… But ex-England boss says he has not been approached yet (Daily Mail)
Speculation is going to surround Mourinho’s future until he eventually leaves the Blues, whether that be in the near or distant future.
Former England manager Fabio Capello would certainly be a bolt out of the blue, but the only problem is he hasn’t really thrown his hat into the ring.
“I am now in Russia, in Moscow. I do not miss the bench,” Capello is quoted as saying. “For now I have not received anything but if something interesting comes up, why not?”
It seems the Daily Mail have taken a leaf out of the Express’ book with this one.
For a man who does not miss the bench, the Chelsea dugout may not prove to be the most tempting proposition.
