The France international became United’s club-record signing when he joined in an £89million deal from Juventus in the summer, which also broke the world transfer record.
Still, some have not been entirely convinced by Pogba’s start at Old Trafford, with Parker suggesting he’s not been enough of a team player so far.
The outspoken former defender spent five years with United between 1991 and 1996, and has questioned if Pogba has truly made a positive impact with the way he’s playing.
‘It’s impossible for Pogba to justify his fee unless he scores fifteen goals a season and has twenty-five assists,’ Parker told 888sport.
‘The problem is that he’s not playing with the same calibre of players that he had at Juventus so he’s trying to do too much and holds onto the ball too long. He never had so many touches of the ball at Juventus because maybe now he feels he doesn’t have the players around him who he respects.

‘Maybe if he kept it more simple and began respecting the people around he’d do more instead of just flashes.
‘He talks of how many times he’s hit the woodwork but I’m pretty sure that Opta count that as being off target. How is that now becoming a positive? Add those eight times to the other occasions he’s been off target and it doesn’t look good.’
