Did you think the Paul Pogba rumors were over just because our opening bid was rejected?  Yeah, I didn't either.

Obstinate is Mourinho's middle name.  And even if it weren't, we'd be silly to not utilize the remaining few days of the transfer window to either try pull off the biggest transfer of the summer (if not football history) or, if nothing else, at least grease some palms and build relationships for upcoming transfer windows.

There is a belief that Chelsea's transfer team, name-checked by Mourinho on Friday, of director Marina Granovskaia and technical director Michael Emenalo, can get a deal done - but there are no guarantees.

Juventus supposedly want at least £70m for Pogba, while the player himself is looking for a salary in excess of £200k per-week.  Those sound outrageous, they may even be outrageous, but they are well within our means.

Paul Pogba was in Juventus' squad as they slumped to 1-0 opening day loss to Udinese.  We have ten days to save him from such egregious suffering.
