Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has slammed Chelsea for selling midfielder Mario Pasalic.

The Croatian was on target as Atalanta narrowly lost to PSG in the Champions League quarter-final clash.

Meanwhile, Ferdinand has revealed his shock that Chelsea didn’t keep or use Pasalic all through his stay at the club.

“Crazy, It’s crazy!” Ferdinand told BT Sport.

“He was a Chelsea player for six years! They’ve just sold him for £12m.”

Pasalic spent six years at Chelsea without making a single appearance for the club.

Pasalic spent time on loan at Monaco, AC Milan, Spartak Moscow and Elche, before eventually sealing a £13million move to the Serie A club earlier this year.

Meanwhile, Chelsea seem well stocked in midfield, but the Blues are also keen to sign Kai Havertz ahead of next season.
