Cape Town - Ex-Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka says midfielder Paul Pogba should move to Chelsea or Real Madrid at the end of the season.

Pogba has been linked with a summer exit from Juventus despite his agent, Mino Raiola, assertion that it would take a world record bid to entice the Italian club to part ways with the French midfielder.

Pogba was named as the best young player at the 2014 Soccer World Cup and has continued to attract the interest of the world's leading clubs including Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United and Real Madrid.

Anelka, who played for Arsenal, Chelsea and Real Madrid among others during his career, gave Pogba some advice on which club the talented midfielder should join next season.  

"Paul technically knows everything and he has the qualities to play anywhere." Anelka told France Football.

"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."

The 21-year-old midfielder left Manchester United for Juventus on a free transfer in 2012 after failing to agree to sign a new contract at Old Trafford under Sir Alex Ferguson.

Pogba has already earned 22 national team caps for France as well as over 100 for Juventus.
