The Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Verratti has also been valued at €100m by some, but the Italy international believes it is time to put things in perspective.
“I am not worth €100 million,” Verratti was quoted as saying by La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“We are just playing football. These amounts of money make me laugh. No one is worth that much.
“And I think it is bad for the players for whom such fees are paid as well because people expect impossible things.”
Manchester United broke the transfer record previously held by Gareth Bale following his €100m move from Tottenham to Real Madrid in 2013 to lure Pogba back to Old Trafford ahead of the 2016-17 campaign.
