Manchester United ace ranked the most marktable in the world

Paul Pogba has been ranked as the most marketable athlete in the world.

According to SportsPro, Pogba has beaten Anthony Joshua to the top spot, as he drops to second with Kylian Mbappe taking number three spot.

Focusing on marketing potential over the coming three-year period, the top ten sees athletes from across the world ranked according to criteria including age, home market, charisma, social media engagement, willingness to be marketed and crossover appeal.

Rising tennis star Alexander Zverev is at four, with 2016 winner Stephen Curry fifth. England’s World Cup Golden Boot winner Harry Kane jumps from 20th in 2017 to sixth in 2018.

At 25, Pogba becomes the eighth athlete to top the list. He follows the likes of last year’s number one Anthony Joshua and Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton in topping the rankings.
