Gary Neville claims Manchester United target Jadon Sancho is "nowhere near" some of the world's elite.
The Red Devils have been linked with the Borussia Dortmund star who is likely to cost around £100m.
Much is made of the Englishman's exploits in the Bundesliga as he establishes himself as one of football's hottest properites.
But Neville is keen to put Sancho's quality into context compared with the world's elite.
"To be honest, Jadon Sancho in this moment of time… we get carried away," Neville told Sky Sports.
"I think we’ve got an amazing group of young English players. But we have to consider the other players that exist, Brazilian players, Argentine players, German players, Belgium players, we are not the only country in the world.
"That’s how it was as an England player and an England coach, 'we have a golden generation'. You say golden generation and obviously it was Becks, Stevie, Frank, Rooney, but then Brazil had Rivaldo, Ronaldinho and Ronaldo, what’s that… platinum?
"You say we have a golden generation but you forget these other countries have world stars. It’s like, 'hang on a second'. Argentina have Aguero, Higuain, Messi, Di Maria, how good are they compared to Jadon Sancho? Jadon Sancho is nowhere near these players.
"Let’s be clear, Jadon Sancho is a talent, but we can’t start putting him in the category with world stars who are winning European cups and World Cups regularly, season in season out.
