Luke Shaw has described Paul Pogba as a “beast” following the Manchester United midfielder’s impressive start to the new Premier League season.

The World Cup winner was thought to be attracting interest from La Liga in the summer transfer window following a controversial 2017-18 season at Old Trafford.

Pogba answered his critics in Russia after the Manchester United record signing helped France to win the World Cup for the first time since their success in 1998.

The 25-year-old got on the score sheet in France’s thrilling 4-2 win over Croatia as Pogba answered his critics by returning to Old Trafford as a world champion.

Manchester United were thought to have received an offer from FC Barcelona for their club record signing in August but Pogba remained at Old Trafford for the start of the season.

Pogba was made the stand-in captain for Manchester United’s opening Premier League fixture and the World Cup winner got on the score sheet in a 2-1 win over Leicester City.

Manchester United left-back Shaw lavished praise on Pogba ahead of their trip to Brighton on Sunday.

“Paul doesn’t need a break,” Shaw told MUTV. “Honestly, he’s a beast! He’s unbelievable. He only came back three or four days before the game and it just shows how important he is for the team.

“He was captain and is a very, very big leader in the dressing room, as you’ll have seen that in the videos from France [at the World Cup] of course.”

The Red Devils will be hoping that Pogba can transfer his France form to the Manchester United team ahead of a potential title tilt.
