Mega star told to pick Chelsea over Man United

Former Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka has urged his compatriot Paul Pogba to pick west London if he leaves Juventus this summer, despite suggestions Manchester United are ready to sign him.

The 21-year-old is currently hailed as one of the very best midfielders on the planet after thriving in Turin following a somewhat controversial decision to leave the Red Devils for free as a youth player.

Pogba has won back-to-back Serie A titles with the Old Lady and is a regular in the Les Bleus’ senior set-up, but there have been suggestions from the Italian club that he could be sold this summer.

The youngster’s agent has also talked up the possibility of a new challenge for his client ahead of next season, and Anelka – who used to play for Chelsea and Manchester City – feels that his fellow countryman should choose Stamford Bridge as his next home:

“Paul technically knows everything and he has the qualities to play anywhere.” He is quoted by The Express. “My preference is for him to join Chelsea, who have very strong players and the financial power of [Roman] Abramovich.”
