Paul Pogba has been slammed for thinking he is better than he is as he prepares to leave Manchester United this summer. The France international is out of contract at Old Trafford and will join a new club in the coming weeks.
Juventus are the frontrunners for his signature while Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid have also been linked with the midfielder. It will call time on his six years at United where he has won the FA Cup and the Europa League.
There is a general consensus that Pogba might have underachieved after joining the Red Devils for a then-world record fee of £89million. There have been question marks over what his best position is, while a well-documented spat with Jose Mourinho also hindered his progress.
And former Wales striker Dean Saunders has taken aim at 29-year-old, insisting that he reckons he is better than his current station. Saunders also stated how the vast talent of N'Golo Kante might have aided Pogba, making him look better than he is at international level for France.
Saunders told talkSPORT: “When he’s had to stand up to the plate and produce the goods – bearing in mind he’s got a £90million price tag on his back and he thinks he’s going to produce magic passes every game – he just gives the ball away too much.
“I just think back, is it Kante? Does Kante make everyone he plays with look good? As soon as they leave Kante, they look bang average and maybe they thought he was better than he was.

“Danny Drinkwater got in the England squad, never to be seen again when he didn’t play with Kante. Pogba when he plays with Kante looks the part. David Luiz looked a player at Chelsea when Kante was in front of him. Matic played at the side of him and looked like a world beater.”
Pogba has been reduced to a bit-part role in recent times at Old Trafford, making just 20 Premier League appearances this season amid an injury-ravaged campaign.
His last appearance also ended acrimoniously after being jeered by his own supporters against Liverpool in April, and the Frenchman will now leave United with barely a whimper after five years at the club.
