You don't need to be Einstein to see 'Mona Lisa' Pogba is the best – Raiola

The France international’s agent says the midfielder is in a league of his own and tipped him to become the most expensive transfer in football history when he leaves Juventus

Mino Raiola has said Paul Pogba is the best young midfielder in the world and suggested he could be set for a world-record transfer from Juventus this summer.

The France international has been in inspired form for the Italian champions this season, once again fuelling reports linking him with a move to Real Madrid and Manchester City.

And Raiola says it’s clear to see that the 21-year-old former Manchester United midfielder is in a league of his own, and that a summer move could see become football’s most expensive player.

“As of today, there is no 21-year-old who shows that he can take charge of a team at the highest level the way that Pogba does,” Raiola told Telefoot.

“Paul does that with Juve and France. You don’t need to be Einstein to see that he can play in for very best teams.

“If the summer is the right time for a move, then we will seize the opportunity. But if he wants to, he could stay one more year.

“He will beat Ronaldo’s transfer record, because there can be only one Mona Lisa.”

Cristiano Ronaldo’s €94 million transfer to Real Madrid in 2009 was eclipsed by Gareth Bales’s €100 million move to the Bernabeu in 2013, though club president Florentino Perez claims fluctuating exchange rates mean the former was the more costly.

Pogba starred for Juve once again on Saturday, inspiring his side to a 3-1 victory over AC Milan, carving out a match-high four opportunities for his side.
