Manchester United have made some big-money signings over the years, particularly since Sir Alex Ferguson decided to call it quits.
However, spending huge amounts of cash doesn’t always guarantee success. Although some great players have been brought in, the Red Devils only have just one truly world-class player. That’s the view of former United midfielder Paul Ince.
“David De Gea is the only world class player at Manchester United – Paul Pogba isn’t there yet,” Ince told Paddy Power News, via the Daily Mirror.
“Him and Anthony Martial have the potential to be, but there’s still some way to go. “
As much as I’d like to argue against this, Ince is speaking nothing but the truth. Paul Pogba has huge potential, but he doesn’t seem to be fulfilling that at this moment in time. Who knows if he ever will reach the heights he’s capable of? He’s shown nothing to prove otherwise.
Anthony Martial is similar. The footballing world is at his feet, he could go on to become a future Ballon d’Or winner, but inconsistency is seemingly going to be his downfall. At 22, though, he’s young and that may change.
David de Gea on the other hand, he’s something special. This is a lad who’s made huge strides as a footballer since he moved to the Theatre of Dreams seven years ago, and I genuinely believe we’re looking at the best shot-stopper in the game.
