He is widely tipped to return to Juventus, but a deal has not yet been reached and PSG and Real Madrid also want the France World Cup winner.

The Frenchman played a total of 233 games for Manchester United, helping them win the Europa League in 2017, but his stay at Old Trafford has been generally considered a failure.

And former England striker Bent, defended Pogba, saying that players in Chelsea and Liverpool will have ‘real admiration’ for him.

“…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,” Bent told talkSPORT.

“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.

“I think other players, players in the Chelsea squad, will think ‘I would love a player like that to come here’.

“Players think differently. It will be the same with Liverpool,” he added.

Pogba could be a perfect replacement for N’golo Kante at Chelsea.
