Barcelona have re-ignited their interest in the services of France international, Paul Pogba, and the La Liga Champions will be making a bid for him once the January transfer window opens. The Juventus midfielder was on top of Chelsea’s priority list during the Summer transfer windows, but the move fell through amidst talks of huge transfer fees, personal terms and his willingness to rather stay put with the Turin giants. The former Manchester United midfielder was also targeted by high-spending Manchester City, but nothing came out of it.
However, a move away from the Serie A might just finally work out by January as Pogba isn’t having a good time currently at Juventus. The 22 year-old is without the help of Pirlo and Vidal, following the departure of the duo at summer, and Pogba is obviously crumbling under the weight of playing in a new position. Juventus currently lie 12th on the table, after winning just 2 out of 7 games, with the Best Young Player of the World Cup 2014 tournament scoring just once, a penalty.
The Catalunya also made bids in Summer, but he wouldn’t have been able to feature until January, when their transfer ban expires if he had eventually signed. The club is now ready to make a January move, with the technical director, Robert Fernandez confirming the club’s status on the development, particularly pointing out the huge transfer fees associated with the French player,
“The amount he’d cost has to be considered. But you can find a solution for that. We have freedom to work [after a transfer ban] and when the time comes we’ll sit down and decide.”
All things being equal, Chelsea might not be able to secure his services anytime soon.
