Paul Pogba claims that the other forwards in the Manchester United squad do not possess the same quality as Edinson Cavani.

Paul Pogba has claimed that the other forwards in the Manchester United squad do not possess the same quality as summer arrival Edinson Cavani.

The 33-year-old moved to Old Trafford on a free transfer following his exit from Paris Saint-Germain and has scored five times in 17 appearances for the Red Devils.

Cavani was on the scoresheet in Wednesday's 2-1 win at Fulham in the Premier League, and Pogba lavished praise on the experienced striker after the match, which helped Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side return to the top of the table.

"Everybody knows that Edi is a top-class striker and there's few strikers like this in the world, and we had the chance to have one," Pogba told MUTV.

"We know the hardest goals are those goals. We have talented players – Anthony Martial, Rashy [Marcus Rashford] in front, even Mason [Greenwood], that they can shoot from outside and stuff – but they don't have this, the experience of Edi, and they don't have the same quality of Edi as well."

Cavani's existing deal at Old Trafford is due to expire in June, but the club have the option of activating a further 12 months on the agreement.
