Chelsea have agreed a £69m bid with Juventus for the transfer of Paul Pogba, according to the Sun.
The Blues have come alive in the transfer market all of a sudden,after completing a deal for Manchester United target Pedro. The Barcelona winger was reportedly on the verge of signing for Louis van Gaal, when Chelsea hijacked the deal and are looking forward to add more quality to their attack as they want to tide over what has been a disappointing start to their campaign in the league.
Chelsea have gathered only a solitary point from their first three games, conceding five goals and scoring only two, including a 3-0 humiliation at the hands of Manchester City, who have been the in-form team in the league thus far.
Pedro is likely to replace Willian on the wings, who will take Oscar's place, just behind the striker and add more variation to the Chelsea attack.
Pogba's arrival will add another dimension to the squad, with his ability to carry the ball from deep in the same ilk as Yaya Toure, who has been the main orchestrator in the middle for the 2013/14 Champions.
The Frenchman left United in 2012, under Sir Alex Ferguson and has grown from strength to strength since joining Juventus.
He is likely to slot alongside Matic in Chelsea's midfield, which will allow Cesc Fabregas to operate in his preferred number 10 role, where he was a major success at Arsenal before joining Barcelona in 2011.
However, Jose Mourinho refused to get himself embroiled in a war of words for the midfielder, stating that he would rather not fuel speculation over his transfer by commenting on the player's future.
"I know (Juventus coach) Massimiliano Allegri was speaking about Oscar and Ramires all summer, but I don't do that about Juventus players. Only Allegri can speak about him, not me," the Portuguese manager said, as quoted by the Evening Standard.
