Chelsea transfers: Paul Pogba will cost huge money, says Mario Melchiot

Former Chelsea defender Mario Melchiot reckons the Blues will have to cough up a big fee for Juventus star Paul Pogba

Mario Melchiot has warned Chelsea that Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba will cost huge money.

The France international is one of Europe’s most-coveted youngsters after a series of impressive performances for the Serie A champions this season.

Premier League trio Chelsea, Manchester City and United have all been linked with a move, whilst Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid are also touted as suitors.

The former Blues defender was asked by one of his followers about a potential midfield partnership of Nemanja Matic and Pogba during a Twitter session on Saturday afternoon, and Melchiot responded:

“Now you’re talking boss. #Pogba but wow that would be price. #mmlove #CFC”

Pogba has scored seven goals and has made two assists in 22 Serie A appearances this season, whilst the talented youngster has scored one goal in the Champions League.

The France midfielder has won two Italian top-flight crowns following his move to Turin from United on a free transfer in 2012.

Chelsea face Arsenal at The Emirates in the Premier League on Sunday.
