Anthony Martial believes that Paul Pogba has the potential to develop into one of the best players in the world at Manchester United.

The French midfielder signed for Manchester United from Juventus in a then world-record transfer deal last summer as Jose Mourinho immediately brought in reinforcements at Old Trafford following his appointment.

However, most Manchester United fans would agree that Pogba generally failed to live up to his top billing in his first season back at Old Trafford, despite being a regular fixture in the team.

Manchester United have made a blistering start to the new season, with the Red Devils having secured impressive 4-0 victories over both West Ham United and Swansea City in their opening two games.

The 24-year-old Pogba has scored two goals and made two assists in his last two appearances for the Red Devils in the Premier League as he begins to have more of an influence on proceedings.

And his France team-mate Martial is tipping the midfielder to enjoy a strong second campaign back at Old Trafford.

Martial told Manchester United’s website: “We want to win a lot of trophies together at United, and we also want to win the World Cup with France.

“If he continues to play and improve like he is doing then I think he is also going to win the Ballon d’Or award in the next five years.”

Manchester United are currently preparing for their Premier League clash against Leicester City at Old Trafford on Saturday evening.
