Chelsea transfers: Jose Mourinho discusses Paul Pogba reports
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho says the Blues don't need Paul Pogba to improve their squad
Jose Mourinho says he is interested in Paul Pogba, but the Chelsea manager is confident he can improve his squad without signing the Juventus midfielder.
The France international has been linked with a host of European football’s biggest clubs in the summer transfer window, including Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United.
Pogba, who moved to the Serie A champions from the Red Devils in 2012, scored eight goals and made three assists in 26 top-flight appearances for Juventus last season.
While Mourinho readily accepts that he is a keen admirer of the box-to-box midfielder, the Portuguese coach was staying predictability tight-lipped on the prospect of Chelsea launching a bid.
“I think everybody has an interest in Pogba,” Mourinho is quoted as saying by Daily Mail.
“But there are things you can do and things you cannot do. I love the Eiffel Tower but I can’t have the Eiffel Tower in my garden. I can’t even have the Eiffel Tower of Las Vegas.
“We feel we have the tools to improve our team without that. And the tools are ourselves.”
The Blues signed Asmir Begovic from Stoke City after Chelsea legend Petr Cech moved to bitter derby rivals Arsenal in an £11m deal at the start of the month.
Mourinho has also added Colombia international and Manchester United flop Radamel Falcao to his title-winning squad.
