Former Italy international Antonio Cassano, who has won league titles with Los Blancos and Milan in the past, did not hold back his disdain when asked about these three players recently.

The 34-year-old has claimed that Pogba – the most expensive player off all time – and Rodriguez are not worth the prices that were paid for them.

"Three overrated players? Pogba, James Rodriguez and Balotelli.," Cassano told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"Is Pogba really worth €120 million? Not for me, no. Rodriguez €80 million? No. If he's worth that, how much would (Andres) Iniesta have been worth at his age?

"As for Balotelli, I wish the best for Mario and he's doing pretty well in France, but both he and Pogba have had great fortune in life: they're managed by a very good agent, Mino Raiola.

"He's given both of them incredible opportunities."
