Nicolas Anelka has urged fellow Frenchman Paul Pogba to sign for Chelsea should e leave Juentus ths summer.
In-demand Pogba was on Manchester United’s books as a youth player, but it never worked out for him at Old Trafford under then-manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
But since moving to Juventus, he has developed into one of Europe’s most sought-after players.
And Anelka, who turned out for some of Europe’s biggest clubs himself, including PSG, Arsenal, Real Madrid, Manchester City and Chelsea, reckons Pogba would fit in well at Stamford Bridge.
He told France Football: “Paul technically knows everything and he has the qualities to play anywhere. My preference is for him to join Chelsea, who have very strong players and the financial power of [Roman] Abramovich.
“Also Real Madrid, who are one of the biggest clubs in the world, if not the greatest. He would grow a lot under Carlo Ancelotti.”
Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola has already revealed that it could take a world-record bid to prise his player away from Turin. There are sure to be no shortage of potential suitors.
