£110 million rated Man Utd target not worth the money says Paul Scholes

The Manchester United legend and football pundit Paul Scholes has expressed his doubts over the valuation Juventus has set on Paul Pogba.

United are planning to complete the transfer of Paul Pogba from Juventus this week according the Daily Mail. However, Scholes doesn’t believes the France international is worth the money.

“He was a very talented young player, I played with him and I knew how good he was,” Scholes was quoted as saying by Sport Witness.

“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 near there yet.

According to Sky, the Red Devils initial £85 million bid was rejected but the Red Devils are set to table a £100 million offer.

The Daily Mail goes onto state that the United  are ready to submit the record braking £110 million transfer fee for the France international and say that the deal will be finalised in the coming days.

Man Utd have already signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic from PSG, Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Dortmund and the young defender Eric Bailly from Villarreal this summer.
