Paul Pogba joined Manchester United from French club Le Havre as a teenager, and succeeded through their ranks, only to get frustrated by the lack of trust and first team action. The midfielder then left United for Juventus for free in 2011, after declining a contract extension with the Red Devils.
And now, the France international is currently linked with a sensational return to Manchester United, with the reported fee being over €100m. This would make Pogba the most expensive player in the world, surpassing Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale.
Manchester United legend Paul Scholes, who has trained and played with Pogba, deems France’s central midfielder unfit of his hefty fee.
Scholes had this to say when asked about Pogba’s fee: “I just don’t think Pogba is worth £86 million. For that money you should be getting someone who scores 50 goals a season like Ronaldo or Messi. He is definitely not worth that kind of money, yet.”
Pogba could be what Manchester United have lacked in midfield for a few seasons now. The Frenchman can provide that driving force from midfield, and with his dribbling ability and physicality, he will be a perfect fit for the Premier League.
If the move goes through, Pogba will also be earning an astronomical wage, which will exceed 250,000 per week.
Is Paul Scholes right? Is Pogba really worth all this money?
