Juventus keeper, Gianluigi Buffon, has stated that teammate Paul Pogba’s talent is comparable to that of a Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo. Speaking in an interview, Buffon said,

“I have never seen a player who is so good at his age. He is so strong, so technically gifted, has exceptional all-round play. Pogba can do things only Pogba can, similar to Messi and Ronaldo.”

The veteran keeper has been very impressed by the young midfielder and even believes that Pogba is now a world class player after tearing up Serie A since arriving from Manchester United. 

Manchester City have recently suggested that they will be entering the bidding war for the 22-year-old phenom. City are in need of another dominant player to go along with Sergio Aguero, and Buffon believes Pogba is a midfielder that can take any team to the next level.

Potential suitors for Pogba will need to break the bank. Past reports have claimed that it could take as much as £70m to obtain his signature.

It will be tough to sign the midfielder as Manchester City, Barcelona, PSG, Chelsea, and Real Madrid are among the clubs who are hunting for Pogba.

However, according to Buffon, it will be worth the time and cash to sign the Juventus superstar.
