Daniel Jimenez Pozanco, agent of Ghana star Thomas Partey has rated his client above Manchester United and Frenchman Paul Pogba.
Partey has emerged a hot commodity for several top Clubs in Europe with Manchester United and Inter Milan in the frontline for the player.
The midfielder who is currently being valued at €50million is unlikely to stay at Atletico Madrid for another season.
Jimenez believes the player is better than Pogba who is regarded one of the best midfielders in the World.
“He is like Pogba, he’s a box to box player, but he is better than the Frenchman, as he does more defensive work. I feel that because he is African, he gets much less media coverage than the Manchester United player,” he told told FcInterNews
“I first watched him play in Ghana, I immediately recognized his qualities and thought that if he could improve on a tactical level, he would be one of the best in the world.
“I told him he must listen, learn and remain humble. A person should always remember where they came from and he has got where he has through hard work. Nobody handed him anything.”
The Ghanaian remains of the player’s to watch at this year’s Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
