Manchester United legend Paul Scholes doesn’t seem too excited about the club potentially signing Juventus ace Paul Pogba.
A fellow midfielder, the former England international doesn’t think that the 23-year-old is worth the record-breaking price being quoted.
Scholes also revealed that he believes the Frenchman was allowed to leave Old Trafford because he was asking for too much money, rather than a lack of first team action.
‘He was a very talented young player, I played with him and I knew how good he was,’ the 41-year-old told Sport Witness.
‘He played for the first team maybe once or twice, but from my understanding he was asking for too much money.
‘For his age, he was asking for far too much money, that too for a player who hasn’t played first team football.
‘Okay, he has gone on to great things. I think certainly there has been a lot of improvement. He needed to improve if he is going to be a player worth £86m.
‘I just don’t think he is worth £86m. For that sort of money, you want someone who is going to score 50 goals a season like Ronaldo or Messi. Pogba is nowhere worth that kind of money yet.’
