Ferdinand: Chelsea crazy to sell Pasalic to Atalanta

Rio Ferdinand says it was crazy for Chelsea to sell Mario Pasalic to Atalanta.

The Croatian spent six years at Chelsea but did not manage one first-team appearance.

He has scored 15 goals in 75 appearances for Atalanta, including the opening goal in Wednesday's loss to PSG in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Speaking on BT Sport during the game, Ferdinand could not believe Chelsea had sold the 25-year-old for 13m.

"Crazy, It's crazy!" Ferdinand exclaimed.

"He was a Chelsea player for six years! They've just sold him for £12m."
