Paul Pogba must be more “consistent” to earn a move to Real Madrid, according to Ander Herrera.
He also does not think the Manchester United midfielder has reached his full potential yet.
Pogba has failed to deliver at Old Trafford since making his way back to United for a second spell at the club in 2016.
United dished out record breaking £89 million transfer fee to bring the World Cup winner back from Juventus.
Since then Pogba has only shown flashes of the brilliance which saw him emerge as one of the top players in the World.
Critics have often singled Pogba out as a scapegoat for United’s mediocre performances in recent years.
It lead to plenty of speculation over his future at Old Trafford with him linked to a move back to Turin.
The World Cup winner was reportedly courted by Real Madrid last summer after admitting that he was ready to undertake a new challenge away from United.
Real have been tipped to revive their interest in Pogba when the transfer window reopens.
Despite the fact he has sat out the majority of the 2019/20 campaign through injury.
However, Herrera is not so sure that Madrid will go for his old teammate, with doubts if he is good enough.
The ex-United midfielder who now plies his trade in France with Paris Saint-Germain – told AS:
“As a footballer, Paul has everything: he cuts through the opposition, he wins the ball back, he’s good in the air.
He’s aggressive, he defends, he attacks, he scores goals, but he’s had his ups and downs in Manchester.
“He’s played games where he completely made the difference and others where he just didn’t, and for a player at that price, you have to always be awesome.
“If he’s able to be consistent then, of course, Madrid or any big European club would want him.
However, it’s the same as with Kylian Mbappe and Neymar, he’s at one of the biggest clubs in the world and for him to leave it’s difficult.”
Pogba is back to full fitness in recent weeks, and is currently preparing with the rest of the United squad for the return of the Premier League.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men will officially resume their season on June 19, with a trip to Tottenham.
