That's a fair comment. 

He is still young, so he does have potential to be up there with the very best in the world in a few years but I just don't think he's there yet.

Who would you have ahead of him?

As a midfielder? Iniesta, Busquets, Alonso, Rakitic, Modric, Vidal, Ozil, just off the top of my head.

Pogba would be about level with Verratti or Thiago for me - those guys could be seriously awesome in a few years but still not quite there yet.

As I said though, I admit that I haven't seen much of Pogba so if people who've seen him play heaps disagree I respect that. I just haven't seen the evidence that he's a World XI type-player already myself

I have seen more people question Modric's selection than Pogba's. Juve were happy to let Vidal go says a bit.

I don't think Juve selling Vidal necessarily means that they didn't rate him. There could be other reason, like he wanted to return to Germany, or to play under Pep. Top clubs sell top players, it doesn't mean it is good business. Real Madrid sold Wesley Sneijder to Inter for only €15m and a season later he was the key attacking player in both a treble winning club team, and the Dutch squad which made the WC final. He came 4th in the 2010 Ballon d'or and was UEFA midfielder of the year, but he clearly wasn't good because why else would RM have sold him?

...

Now I've said all this though Pogba is probably going to single-handedly drag Juve to another Serie A  and Champions League double!

Just realised I was using awards to argue that a player was good in a thread where I'm arguing that I don't agree with an award. Derp.
