Gareth Bale’s £86m move from Tottenham to Real Madrid seemed unfathomable in 2013 but now with the extraordinary TV funding and sponsorship deals, transfer fees have almost lost all meaning.
The £66m for Alvaro Morata, the £45m for Dimitri Payet, the £15m for Jordon Ibe, to name but a few. All price-tags have been hugely inflated compared to what they would have been just a few years ago.
And with the way the market is going, it is not inconceivable that Pogba could be worth £200m in a few years time.
Already a bonafide superstar, he will continue to grow and improve as he reaches his peck years.
He is far from the finish article but, as his compatriot Thierry Henry purred is week, Pogba has what it takes to become one of the best in history.
