Paul Pogba initially struggled to make an immediate impression upon his return to Manchester United but, having had a few months to settle, the world’s most expensive footballer has enjoyed better form at Old Trafford.
The French international has thrived recently, as both a creator and a goalscorer, showing exactly why Jose Mourinho’s side parted with a sum of around £90m to bring the former United academy graduate back to the club where he made his first mark.
Whilst tipping Eden Hazard to claim the PFA Player of the Year award this term, Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher told Sky Sports that Pogba could soon challenge the Belgian for that accolade.
“I was critical of him earlier on in the season. I think they’ve now found the right fit for him – players to play alongside him in that three-man midfield – and he’s starting to look the real deal.”
“I think United are playing a lot better and I expect over the next few months we could be talking about him as one of the best players in the Premier League. He’s not quite there yet, when you’re thinking of maybe (Eden) Hazard in terms of going for PFA Player of the Year, but I think over the next few months he could be right in the running.”
At just 23-years-old, Pogba has the potential to be one of the best players in world football in the coming years and he’ll be hoping to win numerous honours with Manchester United, having enjoyed a sweep of trophies with Juventus during his time in Italian football.
