Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, claims their acquisition of Paul Pogba that broke world transfer record will look cheap in the near future.
“I am pretty sure that next summer some players with only half his quality probably will cost the same money or more so I am waiting for that moment to release him from the scrutiny.
“I think in a couple of years you will realise he was cheap but I have to admit that not many clubs have this vision of anticipation of what can happen in the near future.”
“A few years ago £25 million was a phenomenal player. Today, £25 million is not even a player, it is a prospect of a player. Now, if you want to buy a good prospect, a good 20-year-old player who can be fantastic, you are paying as if the player is already a big player.”
“I think next summer can bring a few surprises at this level and probably Paul will lose this status as the world’s most expensive player, which will probably be a good thing.”
Paul Pogba hold status as the most expensive player ever after his switch from Serie A champion Juventus last summer for £89 million. He has put some impressive performances for Manchester United this season with averaging 7.75 rating after 24 league matches according to Whoscored. Pogba and Ibrahimovic has been two key players for United this season for their search for Champions League spot next season.
