Robbie Fowler: Man Utd target Pogba is ‘massively overrated’

Robbie Fowler believed Paul Pogba is worth nowhere near £100million.

The French midfielder continues to be linked wth a big-money move from Juventus to Manchester United but former Liverpool star Fowler is of the belief that the players is not as good as many believe, indicating that the aforementioned transfer fee would be a complete waste of cash.

“Manchester United’s pursuit of Paul Pogba is a case of them showing their teeth… because they can,” he said

“But £100m? C’mon. I’m sorry, but Pogba is massively overrated.

“Look, he must be a good player because so many people in the game speak about his qualities and you don’t get to the top in Italy without having talent.

“I just don’t see it. He hasn’t really stood out in Europe and most certainly not at these European Championships. He’s done OK against pretty limited opposition for France, but what else does he bring?

“Energy and athleticism to midfield, but so does N’Golo Kante. He’s skilful but selfish, not many goals, which for me is a fundamental problem if you’re going to spend £100m on him.

“I’ll be honest, I hate speaking about United because people always say I have an agenda. I don’t – I just have an opinion.

“I honestly don’t see enough from him to justify that kind of outlay, yet Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United does need something to get them back with the big beasts of the football jungle, and with a statement of intent like that, at least it shows they have some seriously big incisors.”
