Paul Pogba is one of the best players in world football, says Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho says Paul Pogba is currently one of the best, if not the best, midfield player in world football.

The £89m Frenchman, who has only trained with United for 11 days, has been declared fit for selection by Mourinho for the Friday Night Football clash against Southampton, live on Sky Sports 1.

But the United boss does not expect to see Pogba breaking Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo's domination of the Ballon d'Or because his goal haul, which never exceeded 10 in a season at Juve, is not eye-catching enough.
