In a bit of random silliness, even by classic rumor mill standards, Paulo Dybala was linked with a potential move to Chelsea. The presence of a plethora of attacking midfielders makes a move for Dybala very unlikely, but then again, even the silliest of rumors have a tendency of coming to fruition at times.

According to La Nazione (via Sport Witness) and Quotidiano Sportiva (via Daily Express), Juventus’ reasons for putting Dybala on the transfer market are not just sporting; they need to raise funds to make a concerted effort towards signing their dream target Paul Pogba as well. The Old Lady have been seemingly monitoring Pogba for years now, and his performance against AC Milan in the Europa League has led Juve to believe that he is the right man to lead their midfield.
