Chelsea owner Roman Abramovic is reportedly setting himself up to smash the club’s transfer record by coughing up £64million to bring midfielder Paul Pogba on board from Italian giants Juventus, according to reports in Spain.
The 22-year-old is widely regarded as one of the best young players in the world right now and has established himself as one of the most in-demand players in the game with a number of top clubs all thought to be vying for his signature.
But according to reports, the Blues chief is preparing a record breaking offer for the French international in a bid to beat his rivals and help reignite Chelsea’s lacklustre season.
His form in Turin has marked him out as a special talent, and Chelsea may have to be prepared to beat the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain to his services.
Chelsea’s current record stands at £50m when they signed Fernando Torres from Liverpool back in 2011.
