Chelsea boss Conte says Man Utd 'crazy' over Pogba pursuit

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte feels Manchester United’s move for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba is crazy.

Chelsea will not be competing for blockbuster signings like £105million France midfielder Pogba, who Conte signed from Manchester United in his spell at Juventus.

He said: “We must respect the squad. If we have fantastic wingers — Willian, Pedro, Kenedy, Cuadrado — you must understand that you can build a team to respect these types of players.

“For us, if we buy a winger for £100m we are mad. We are crazy. As it is not important for us.

“It is more important in another role — and if you spend £20m you will get a player that will adapt to our ideas and help to reinforce us.”
