Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho admits he's a big fan of Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba. Mourinho fuelled talk of a bid by claiming that Pogba was the best young player at the World Cup in Brazil, despite the performances of starlets such as Colombia's James Rodriguez.
Speaking in his role as Yahoo's Global Football Ambassador, he said: "I would say Pogba has been the best young player, because he had a good World Cup despite the fact his team didn't reach the last four.
"I think he showed that he is a big player for the next World Cup."
