Scholes is a fan of Pogba's abilities but feels such a hefty price tag would suggest he is at the same level as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, and he does not believe the France international can be considered as good as the Barcelona and Real Madrid stars just yet.
"He was a very talented player," Scholes told reporters when discussing Pogba's fledgling United days. "I played with him quite a lot.
"If you ask me, at that time his agent was asking for a lot of money for a player who did not play first-team football except once or twice.
"Okay, he has gone on to great things and there was a massive improvement in him. I just don't think he is a player worth £100m-plus right now.
"For that money, you would need a player who scores 50-plus goals a season, like Ronaldo or Messi. Pogba is not there yet."
