“My preference is Chelsea, who have really big players and (Roman) Abramovich’s financial power, or Real Madrid, who are one of the biggest clubs in the world – if not the biggest,” Anelka said.
Pogba only signed a new five year deal – worth a reported £70,000 a week – with the Italian champions in October last year, but there are already suggestions that the 21-year-old will not see out the entirety of his contract.
Anelka – who played alongside the midfielder at Juventus in 2013 – has suggested that Madrid’s current manager, Carlo Ancelotti, who the 35-year-old worked under at Stamford Bridge, may be able to get the best out of Pogba.
“I can see him doing well there, with regards to his playing style and the coach there. Carlo Ancelotti would get a lot out of him,” Anelka added.
But he admitted that the French international probably knows already where his future lies.
“In his head, Paul will already know clubs that he wants to play for.”
