Chelsea and Juventus could be set for HUGE £80m swap deal

Italian giants Juventus are reportedly interested in signing Chelsea playmaker and Brazilian superstar, Oscar in a deal that could see Paul Pogba head to England in what would be one of the biggest swap deals in football history. According to the Daily Mirror, the Serie A sides’ desire to sign Oscar could give Chelsea the chance to sign Pogba ahead of a host of European giants. Juventus are looking to instigate a £20m deal to secure the services of the Chelsea playmaker, who has endured an impressive but difficult season under Jose Mourinho, as he has been in and out of the side.

Juventus have claimed it would need to be a world record deal to secure the Frenchman and a fee of at least £60 million would be required. Jose Mourinho has been coy on his transfer ideas for this summer but he will want to strengthen his squad in order to reduce poor performances which could have been avoided so far this season as the Blues look to dominate English football. If any potential agreement between the clubs is to be made it will have to be a player-plus-cash deal on Chelsea’s behalf, though Mourinho has highlighted the importance of meeting the guidelines of FIFA’s Financial Fair Play on several occasions and that could affect any move. Embed from Getty Images Oscar has featured 24 times in the Premier League so far this season, scoring six times and creating seven goals. By comparison, Paul Pogba has made 22 Serie A appearances, scoring seven with two assists. Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain have all been linked with moves for Pogba and he looks set to be the most in-demand player in Europe this summer. Would a swap deal between Chelsea and Juventus for Oscar and Paul Pogba make sense?
