Paul Pogba 'is the world's best players

Juventus match against Manchester City this evening, the legendary Juventus goalkeeper, Gianluigi Buffon gives a special assessment to his colleague, Paul Pogba. Buffon said that Pogba is one of the world's best players.

"Level Paul Pogba since a few seasons ago, he is someone who has the capacity of the best players in the world, and I said, including better than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo," said Buffon as reported by Mirror (15/9)

Buffon revealed it after the rumors that some big European clubs including tonight's rivals, Manchester City want to bring players the Frenchman.
Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba's performances last season put him alongside Barcelona's Lionel Messi and Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo as one of the best players in the world, according to the Frenchman's club captain Gianluigi Buffon.

Juve claimed a domestic double in the 2014-15 term and surprised many by making it all the way to the Champions League final before losing to Barca.

Buffon believes Pogba put himself among the best in the game with his performances in the campaign, per the Mirror's David Anderson: "The level that Paul Pogba was playing at last season, there was nobody better in the world, and I include Messi and Ronaldo in that."

The Old Lady managed to keep hold of their star 22-year-old over the summer despite huge interest from elsewhere. The club reportedly turned down an €80 million (£58.6 million) bid for Pogba from Barcelona, per Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport (h/t ESPN FC).

Manager Massimiliano Allegri will hope the France international continues to perform from the centre of midfield where he was so vital last term.

A different type of player to Messi and Ronaldo, Pogba contributes both defensively and in attack.

His goalscoring contribution is nowhere near the level of the La Liga duo, per WhoScored.com. However, he is similarly valuable to his side.
