Juventus will not release Paul Pogba to any club for anything less than €70 million but this extremely high price tag has not intimidated Chelsea as the Premier League club is believed to be willing to pay that steep price for the young Frenchman.
The owner of Chelsea, Roman Abramovich is prepared to spend that much money in the prodigy who is already being labeled as: ‘’The next Zinedine Zidane’’
Chelsea will do whatever it takes to continue winning titles even if it means dishing out large sums of cash in a player and this is what they have to do as all of their rivals are also splashing out high amounts of money in signing new players.
The first victory of this season that Chelsea secured can be credited in a large part to the latest high-profile signing that Jose Mourinho completed as the Portuguese manager snatched Pedro Rodriguez for a price tag of €26.6m.
In this summer transfer window, Pedro was a player who was being sought out by Manchester United but Chelsea acted faster and splashed out the cash for the Spanish attacker which has already resulted in a huge impact for Chelsea as he almost single handedly secured all 3 points for the Premier League club during his debut match.
Pedro scored the opening goal of the entire game as well as provided an assist to Diego Costa which helped Chelsea in sealing their 3-2 triumph over West Bromwich Albion.
This was the first victory of the season for Chelsea and not surprisingly, Pedro was named as the man of the match for his sublime performance but Jose Mourinho went even further and compared Pedro to the former Argentine star Diego Maradona.
Jose Mourinho praised Pedro by saying that his latest arrival performed at a level comparable to Diego Maradona. Chelsea’s Jose Mourinho said: “He wasn’t quite Maradona but he was close. He’s a very good player. There is always a question mark because of how many top players come to England and don’t perform immediately. We have examples in our club and there are lots of examples at other clubs, so it’s very nice for him to come and straight away perform the way he did’’
