Scholes: Pogba not worth €100m

Paul Scholes believes Real Madrid are right to no longer pursue a deal for Paul Pogba as the midfielder "just isn't worth €100m".

Scholes played with Pogba at Manchester United in the 2011-12 season, which would prove to be the Frenchman's last before joining Juventus on a free transfer, although he appears set for a return to Old Trafford after Madrid reportedly refused to meet the Bianconeri's three-digit asking price.

"He was a very talented young player, I played with him and I knew how good he was," he was quoted as saying at a futsal tournament in India by Sky Sports on Sunday.

"I just don't think he is worth £86m (€100m). For that sort of money, you want someone who is going to score 50 goals a season like Ronaldo or Messi. Pogba is nowhere near there yet."
