Pogba price tag 'can be forgotten'

  Pogba price tag 'can be forgotten' Ray Parlour believes Paul Pogba's £100m price tag will be quickly forgotten if he can help deliver the Premier league title. Sky sources understand Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has begun negotiations with Juventus that could see Pogba return to Old Trafford in a world-record deal worth £100m.Real Madrid have also been credited with a serious interest in the France midfielder but his acquisition could prove decisive in United's bid to reclaim the Premier League crown, according to Parlour.

The ex-Manchester United star believes only players like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are worthy of such a gigantic price-tag, insisting the midfielder is not at that level.

Scholes is a fan of Pogba 's abilities but feels such a hefty price tag would suggestively elevate him to the I just don't think he is a player worth £ 100 m -plus right now. "For that money, you would need a player who scores "I haven't seen much of Mkhitaryan but he seems to be a good player," he said .

Scholes is a fan of Pogba's abilities but feels such a hefty price tag would suggest he is at the same level as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, and he does not believe the France international can be considered as good as the Barcelona and Real Madrid stars just yet.

"He was a very talented player," Scholes told reporters when discussing Pogba's fledgling United days. "I played with him quite a lot.

"If you ask me, at that time his agent was asking for a lot of money for a player who did not play first-team football except once or twice.

"Okay, he has gone on to great things and there was a massive improvement in him. I just don't think he is a player worth £100m-plus right now.

"For that money, you would need a player who scores 50-plus goals a season, like Ronaldo or Messi. Pogba is not there yet."

According to Sky in Italy, United had an £85m bid for Pogba rejected by Juventus on Tuesday, although Mourinho has since refused to confirm or deny whether the France international is a target.The Serie A champions reportedly told Manchester United a world-record fee in excess of £100m would be accepted.

Paul Scholes says Frenchman is not worth such an enormous price tag. Pogba could become the most expensive footballer ever should he complete a return to Old Trafford this summer, with a £ 100 m fee not out of the question following negotiations, as United try to re-sign a player they allowed to

Jose Mourinho has added Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan to his attacking options for the forthcoming season and Scholes feels both men will have points to prove.

"I haven't seen much of Mkhitaryan but he seems to be a good player," he said.

"With Ibrahimovic, he was playing at PSG and there were a lot of chances created and it was easy to score in that league.

"Is the United team as good as the PSG team? Not yet, maybe it will be. So in this league he will have to do a lot himself to score goals."

Nevertheless, Scholes suggested rivals Manchester City might have snared the most impressive buy between the clubs so far this close season by persuading Ilkay Gundogan - the Germany international midfielder who is still recuperating from a knee injury - to join from Borussia Dortmund.

"He is a very good player if he can stay fit," he added. "I have seen a lot of him with Dortmund. He has had a lot of injury problems but he can be fantastic if he can be fit.

"[Buying Gundogan] for about €20m - that's a steal, these days."
