Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is pushing for the club to sign former Manchester United wonderkid Paul Pogba.

The Special One is keen on the £25m-rated France international and the player is equally sold on a return to England, according to the Sunday People.

Pogba, aged 20, has two-and-half years remaining on his current deal but Juve have not yet convinced him to accept an extension and pay rise.

That might convince the Italian giants to part company with the midfielder while his stock is at its highest.

Pogba joined from United on a free transfer last summer when he refused to sign a new contract at Old Trafford. He was said to be disappointed with the lack of first-team opportunities and the club’s refusal to meet his wage demands.

There have been plenty of chances to impress in Turin. He has become one of Juve’s best players while helping them to win last season’s Serie A title.
