Chelsea players ‘would love’ for Boehly to sign £400,000-a-week star
Chelsea players would love for the club to sign departing Man United midfielder Paul Pogba – Darren Bent has opened up and claimed
Much was expected of the Frenchman when he completed a £89m return to United in 2016 – but he has not impressed like many had hoped for and just looked like a player that never really wanted to be in Manchester – but was happy to collect that massive wage
However – after years of speculation and rumours – he is finally departing the club when his contract runs out on June 30th after failing to agree a new contract – and it is believed that he will head back to Italian football
And despite all the criticism that he has received during his stay with Man United – Ben t has defended the Frenchman says his fellow professionals will have ‘real admiration’ for him,
‘When you look at his stats for Manchester United, they’re not that bad,’ Bent told talkSPORt. ‘That’s not horrible stats, they’re okay.
‘For someone with that much quality, the most frustrating thing is when you see him put on that France shirt, you just want that level of performance for United.
‘He’s playing in a good team for France, a better team. I know he hasn’t been good enough [for United] but he is a good player. He hasn’t been a success but he has won two trophies there.
‘It hasn’t worked and they’ve paid a lot of money for a footballer who’s now leaving for nothing.
‘I don’t know if Chelsea fans will want him to join but I wonder if some of the players would. Footballers will think differently to fans.
‘There will be a real admiration for Paul Pogba amongst other players in the Premier League, from the players who have played against him.
‘I think other players, players in the Chelsea squad, will think “I would love a player like that to come here”. Fans will see it differently and say “he doesn’t work hard enough, it didn’t work at United, why would we want him?”
‘But players think differently. It will be the same with Liverpool. Fans might think he wouldn’t suit the system, but I bet there’s Liverpool players who would want him.’
