Manchester United reportedly thwarted attempts from Barcelona to snare Pogba away from Old Trafford in the summer.
The hit in stature hasn't gone unnoticed either, with Real Madrid and Manchester United showing an interest in him.
German media reported in August that Boateng informed United coach Jose Mourinho of his decision to not return to Manchester, where he had played for local rivals City in the 2010-11 season.
"I make no secret I want to become like him".
He said: "I think when we give him time, and we keep our patience with the players and with him, I think we can actually focus on what's happening".
Numerous fans have had enough but we're not too sure what Pogba's current teammates think of his behaviour.

Watford midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure has labelled his former worldwide colleague Paul Pogba a "show-off" ahead of the Hornets' game against Manchester United on Saturday.
"I had enquiries from Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United".
Neville the pundit would say: he's a talented player but I want to see more consistency and leadership.
"As a fan, honestly, part of me is that no one is bigger than the club and I am not interested in people who are looking left and right". You don't need to do that'.
Premier League surprise team Watford, who have won their first four games, face Pogba's troubled United tomorrow at Vicarage Road and could go top of the table for only the second time in their history if they win, which would pile more trouble on Mourinho and his team.
Doucoure, unlike Pogba, is yet to win a full cap for France.
However, it wasn't to be and Mourinho ended up empty handed as executive vice chairman Ed Woodward failed to land any of his defensive targets so United will have to wait until at least January to get their hands on a new centre-back.
