Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says he is impressed with Paul Pogba.

Transfer rumours linking Paul Pogba to Chelsea sparked up again yesterday, after the midfielder was spotted in Knightsbridge, west London.

Now manager Jose Mourinho has added fuel to the fire by announcing his admiration for the player, declaring him as the best young player at the World Cup.

In his regular interview with Yahoo, Mourinho said: "I would say Pogba, 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.”

Mourinho went onto name Arjen Robben as the best player of the tournament so far, a player he once signed for Chelsea.

"I think Robben, I think from day one until the last match I think he was the player that play from day one until the last moment at a high level, never ever up and down, always up."

Pogba scored one goal at the tournament in the 2-1 second round win for France over Nigeria, before Les Bleus were eliminated by Germany in the quarter-final.

Juventus are keen to hold onto Pogba, but their resolve would be tested seriously by a bid in the region of £60 million.
