Robbie Fowler does not seem to be a fan of Pogba. The former England striker says the France international is overrated and has been sub par at the Euros.
In a brutally honest column, Fowler has written ahead of the Euro 2016 final. He says the 23-year-old is a selfish player, who does not score a lot of goals.
“Manchester United’s pursuit of Paul Pogba is a case of them showing their teeth… because they can,” he wrote for the Mirror.
“It is a massive statement of intent from the most financially powerful club in the world, designed, I suspect, to show they still have plenty of bite in the transfer market.
“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 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.”
