#WorldCupRank: No. 30 Paul Pogba

Juventus and French international Paul Pogba might just be the heir apparent to the throne left vacant by Patrick Vieira.

« Previous: No. 31, Vincent Kompany | Next: No. 29, Mesut Ozil »

No. 30 Paul Pogba, Juventus/France

Why he's ranked: Seemingly overnight, Pogba has matured into one of the midfield giants of European football. A towering figure at 6-foot-3, he is one of a rare few in the modern game who combine power with guile in the heat of any midfield battle. Previously with Manchester United, he has matured into a hugely impressive performer with Juventus and has been promoted from the successful French under-20 side that won the World Cup last year to play with the senior side this summer. Perhaps United wish they could have him back.

Paul Pogba is at the top of several big clubs' wish lists for next season but still has two years remaining on his Juventus contract.
Pogba and Juventus were Serie A champions this season, but where will he fit in on the French team?

Key stat: Pogba is one of only two midfielders in Serie A (Arturo Vidal) to rank in the top 16 in chances created and tackles this season.

What the experts say: "He is only 21 and at his age, I can't remember anyone who was capable of doing what he is doing now for club and country. He can do anything on a football pitch. He is a very special talent and that's why all the big European clubs are chasing him -- and Juventus are so desperate to keep him." - Julien Laurens
