Graeme Souness believes Paul Pogba could easily hit double figures every season if the Manchester United star realises his undoubted potential at Old Trafford.

The France international has enjoyed a return to form since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed as Jose Mourinho’s interim successor last month.

The new Manchester United manager has given Pogba more freedom in the Red Devils team, a move which has paid dividends following a return of four goals and four assists in five Premier League games.

Pogba created Marcus Rashford’s 44th-minute winner against Tottenham at Wembley on Sunday evening after the World Cup winner found the England striker with a beautiful pass.

The 25-year-old has already surpassed his best return for a season at Manchester United with seven goals in the current campaign.

Former Liverpool FC and Spurs midfielder Souness believes Pogba is capable of scoring double figures for Manchester United every season.

“This is how I see it: there is a real, real player in there,” Souness told Sky Sports after Man United’s 1-0 win.

“[He is] someone who has every bit of equipment to become a top midfielder in an attacking sense right now.

“He has the athleticism to arrive in the box late and get well into double figures every season.

“He would be a real asset to Man United.”

Manchester United have won their opening six games under Solskjaer since the former Norway international replaced Mourinho at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils are level on 41 points with Arsenal after their 1-0 win against third-placed Tottenham Hotspur to give them renewed hope of a top-four finish.

Manchester United will take on Brighton in their next league game at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.
