The tag of ‘The most expensive player in the world’ was bound to heighten everyone’s expectations towards Paul Pogba, and to be honest, for someone who is just 24 years old and new to one of the most competitive leagues in the world, the buzz was always going to be too much to take.

The French international still managed to finish the season with a decent tally of 5 goals and 4 assists last term, showing flashes of brilliance sometimes. However, anything less than extraordinary was not going to be enough because of his hefty price tag, so he was bombarded by the ‘Is he worth £89 million?” question by everyone.

United fans will hope that this season Pogba shuts his critics, and it looks like their hopes may turn into reality after seeing how the midfielder has started the pre-season.

The Frenchman let everyone know what he is capable off by pulling off some silky skills to get past Fernandinho. He was one of the stars of the match in United’s pre season game against bitter rivals City.

He also displayed the strong defensive aspect of his game by intercepting passes expertly and giving us a perfect example of how a Box to Box midfielder should dictate the midfield. Check out video below –
