Paul Pogba is reportedly being offered around a number of top clubs at the moment, with the France international’s future at Manchester United looking in doubt.
And in a shock development, one of the teams being offered his services is said to be Premier League rivals Chelsea, along with Real Madrid and Barcelona, according to Don Balon.
Pogba has struggled during his time at Old Trafford, struggling to fit in in Jose Mourinho’s tactical setup, leading to talk he could be on his way out this summer.
Diario Gol have previously claimed Pogba can leave if United can receive an offer in the region of £88million, but it’s not clear if that would also apply to other English clubs.
Mourinho could be left extremely red-faced if the 25-year-old were to go on and shine for a club like Chelsea, in a similar style to the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Mohamed Salah, both of whom he sold earlier in their careers before they went on to become world class performers for Manchester City and Liverpool, respectively.
Pogba certainly seems capable of that kind of response to a disappointing spell at United, but it remains to be seen if Chelsea could afford him.
The Daily Record have also previously claimed the player has been offered to Paris Saint-Germain, and along with Real and Barca, one imagines they’d be more capable of paying the money required for both a transfer fee and his wages.
Chelsea hold talks with the agent of Argentina forward
Chelsea are reported to have held talks with the agent of Cristian Pavon over a potential move to Stamford Bridge.
Argentinian journalist Luis Fregossi states that the Blues will face competition from Premier League rivals Arsenal, who have also been keeping an eye on his progress.

The 22-year-old was the stand-out players as Boca Juniors secured the Premeria Division last season, scoring six times and setting up 11 goals for his teammates.
Pavon joined Boca four years ago at the age of 18 and is believed to have cost the Buenos Aires club around €1.3m.
He would cost any potential suitors a lot more now, and his ability to play on both wings, plus his trickery on the ball make him a valuable asset.
With Antonio Conte still in charge at Chelsea, despite rumours of him leaving having been in circulation for months, the club must make meaningful additions if they are to improve on last season’s disappointing finish.
Should Pavon move to Cobham, he will challenge the likes of Willian, Pedro and Eden Hazrad for a spot in the starting XI.
Any move for the Argentinian will likely have to wait until after the World Cup, as Pavon has been called up to Jorge Sampaoli’s 23-man squad.
