Talent wise, yes.
Attitudinally, the effect he has on the team and being able to rely on him when we need him? Absolutely fecking not.
With the money we could get for him we could buy players to make a proper team, not relying on a primadonna showpony to be arsed.
If we can find midfield players better than Pogba then sure, let's buy them. But why not sell Pogba afterwards, once they've proved themselves, rather than before?

This is what I don't understand about the sell-Pogba crowd: why sell your most talented midfielder first?!? However patchy his performances, he is still a match-winner at his best, and we have very few of those. Plus, we have shown no ability in recent years to compete for the very best talent, so the ideas of selling someone as good as Pogba before we have replacements in place is simply idiotic.

How many matches will he win in a season and how much will his behavior and attitude impact on other players ? If Madrid want come up with 20 mil + Kroos and Bale , kiss them

Oh, Jesus.

Because our recent experience with buying 29-year old Sanchez/Matic/Schweinsteiger/Falcao has been so great?!?

I mean, there is being slow to learn, which is bad enough, and then there is doing something over and over again and expecting a different result, i.e. total insanity.

Ridiculous comment... Pogba has been involved in 20 goals this season for us, of our 61 goals as a feckin team.

Take his 20 goals out and we'd most likely be floating around somewhere about relegation!

And that is an issue. He's not good enough to build a team around. He doesn't have the top level drive.
He's not good enough to build a team around when the players you're building around him are Smalling, Young, Matic, Sanchez, etc. But then again, who is? At Juve and France (and if he goes to Madrid), he wasn't surrounded by mid-table level players and he seemed to do just fine.
