The Ghana international has been linked with the Red Devils – among other big clubs – and his representative considers him to be an elite player
Thomas Partey is better than Paul Pogba, according to his agent, with the Atletico Madrid midfielder generating talk of interest from the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal and Inter.
Partey is considered to be a more all-round performer than a French counterpart and has a release clause of just €50 million (£44m/$56m) in his contract at Atletico.
Jose Daniel Jimenez Pozanco told FcInterNews of a highly-rated performer, who does not always get the recognition his displays deserve: “He is like Pogba, he’s a box to box player, but he is better than the Frenchman.
“That is because he does more defensive work. I feel that because he is African, he gets much less media coverage than the Manchester United player.
“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.”
Pozanco added on the reported interest being shown in Partey from San Siro: “There is no reason why he won’t move to Italy. Inter, like Atleti are a top team.
“He has a €50m release clause and in football anything is possible, just look at Diego Godin leaving to join Inter and Antoine Griezmann possibly on his way to Barcelona.”
