Things are really shaping up for Chelsea fans as the week comes to a close. The club made things official with the signing of Barcelona’s Pedro, who snubbed rivals Manchester United for Stamford Bridge.
Now, according to the Daily Express, Jose Mourinho and Roman Abramovich have set their sights on a new target: Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba.
The France international has been out of the transfer pages for a while, but he looks set to step back into the spotlight in a mooted deal involving another long-time Blues target in John Stones.
The Daily Star says that the Everton centre-back will be part of a £100 million double move for both Stones and Pogba, as the England international is ready to put in a transfer request to try and force a move to the Premier League title holders.
Tottenham to up bid for Berahino?
A resolute West Bromwich Albion and Tony Pulis may be tested further on said resolve to keep Saido Berahino at the club for the 2015-16 season. The Independent reports that Tottenham are prepared to up their bid to £20m to help Harry Kane in Spurs’ front line.
Mauricio Pochettino says he remains confident that they’ll be able to bring in another offensive player, but he wouldn’t name names at this point. Berahino (or whatever forward Spurs bring in) will be key to the club’s plans to play a 4-4-2 formation more often this season, as opposed to the 4-2-3-1 they largely employed in 2014-15.
