Premier League champions Chelsea are planning on throwing up a ‘hail Mary’ in their last minute attempt to sign both Juventus Paul Pogba and Everton’s John Stones before the transfer window slams shut. Reports coming out from Italy have stated that Chelsea are preparing for an epic finale in the last days of the transfer window to sign the duo. The Blues are reported to be willing to part with as much as 100 million pounds or more just to land both John Stones and Paul Pogba.
With John Stones expected to cost £40 million pounds, while Juventus Paul Pogba is said to be valued at £70 million pounds. The defending champions Chelsea are understood to have increased the urgency as well as dedicated all their resources in a clutch moment to bring the duo to Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea will feel hard-done on not landing John Stones after seeing three official bids rejected by Everton. But the Blues seem to have been handed a boost in their pursuit of John Stones as the 21 year old has reportedly submitted a transfer request, which will pave the way for Chelsea to acquire John Stones who has been tagged as John Terry’s successor.
Meanwhile Juventus are believed to be not interested in selling playmaker Paul Pogba due to the loss of midfield generals like Vidal and Pirlo already this season. However, the Italian giants just signed Colombian Juan Cuadrado on loan from Chelsea which could have a lot of influence on selling Pogba, with the Blues also expected to table a record bid for the French midfielder.
