Chelsea are considering stumping up the staggering £60million Juventus want for Paul Pogba.

Manchester United, who had Pogba as a scholar, want to re-sign him – but not at that price.

However, Chelsea see the 21-year-old France international as a good investment, not least because his Premier League academy status, just like Cesc Fabregas, helps the club conform to UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules.

Pogba has been impressive during France’s run to the last 16 of the World Cup in Brazil where they take on Nigeria in Brasilia on Monday.

The midfielder left Old Trafford for Turin under a cloud two years ago, firing a parting shot at Sir Alex Ferguson.

Speaking to The Times last year, he said: ‘It was all down to Ferguson. I didn’t want to sign a contract as Ferguson didn’t play me, even though there were no midfielders there.
