Chelsea want to sign Paul Pogba in a swap deal

Juventus midfield star Paul Pogba is a subject of interest from almost all major European clubs.

The Serie A champions have reportedly resigned to the summer departure of their midfield star, and the Frenchman’s availability in the transfer market is surely going to wage a bidding war during the summer.

The latest report from HITC Sport, claims that Chelsea are planning to bring Pogba to Stamford Bridge in a swap deal involving midfielder Nemanja Matic.

The West London club are set to appoint Antonio Conte as their manager on a three-year deal. Conte played an enormous role in the progress of Pogba’s career during his time with the Turin club and could play a significant role in convincing the 22-year-old to move to Chelsea.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are ready to let Matic leave. The Serbian signed from Benfica in 2014 for a transfer fee of £18.75 million. He helped the Blues win the double in his first full season with the club following his move from Portugal.

However, he has consistently struggled with his form this season and Hiddink has preferred to play John Obi Mikel in his starting eleven.
