Paul Pogba is a transfer target for Chelsea and Barcelona

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho may be willing to sell two of his unwanted players as a part of the deal to lure Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba to Stamford Bridge

The Old Lady are interested in signing Chelsea duo Ramires and Juan Cuadrado and Chelsea may use this as a perfect opportunity to use them as a part of the deal to lure Pogba, according to reports from The Sunday Times

Cuadrado has struggled to cement his place under Mourinho since joining the Blues in the last January transfer window. The Colombian winger is certain to drop down the pecking orders at the club, following the arrival of Pedro Rodriguez from Barcelona. A loan move therefore will suit all the parties involved here. If the reports are to be believed, Juventus are looking to sign Cuadrado in the summer transfer window on loan, with a view to make the deal permanent. 

Juventus are also interested in signing Chelsea’s Brazilian midfielder Ramires. The Bianconeri want the Brazilian to restock the midfield depleted by the departures of Andrea Pirlo and Arturo Vidal in the summer. 

According to reports from the ever-reliable Gianluca Di Marzio, Chelsea have already offered a €75m bid for Pogba, but it was rejected immediately. Juventus have assured Allegri that Pogba will not be sold in the summer, especially after the departures of two high profile midfielders in Pirlo and Vidal. 

Furthermore, Juventus want £72.5m of income from Pogba’s planned sale to be reflected in their balance books in a year’s time, and not now. Also, the Italian champions have a lucrative deal in place to sell Pogba to Barcelona, who are expected make a formal move for the French international once their transfer ban from FIFA gets lifted. The next few days could get really interesting.
