Paul Pogba has the quality to become one of the world’s best players at Manchester United, Pat Nevin has claimed.

The France international has endured a difficult second season at Manchester United following his £89m move from Juventus in 2016.

The 25-year-old scored two times and made two assists in the opening four Premier League games in the current campaign.

However, Pogba suffered a hamstring problem in September to keep the club record signing sidelined for almost two months.

Jose Mourinho hasn’t been afraid to leave out Pogba in recent months due to the versatile midfielder’s ineffective performances.

Reports have even suggested that Pogba could leave Manchester United at the end of the 2017-18 season.

However, former Chelsea FC winger Nevin believes Pogba can still blossom into a top player at Manchester United.

“He is quite capable to be among the best of the best,” Nevin told Newstalk.

“With his capabilities, he should be up there fighting for the player of the year this season. He isn’t.”

Pogba won the Europa League and the League Cup last season but the Red Devils finished in sixth place in the Premier League table.

Manchester United sold Pogba in an £800,000 a week deal to Serie A giants Juventus before he returned to Old Trafford in 2016.
