The Scot has been impressed by Pogba since his arrival at United U18s.
Albiston told the Manchester Evening News: "He was at the centre of that controversy with Le Havre but signed for the Reds in October.
"When I saw the 16-year-old make his debut for the United academy side at Crewe my first thoughts were: 'He looks and plays exactly like Patrick Vieira!'
"He is very tall for a midfielder like former Arsenal player Vieira and is gangly but he has a lovely touch on the ball. He can pick a pass out superbly.
"The physical side of the English game will be no problem to him.
"He's got a great strike on him from outside the box and hit a fabulous shot on that debut that cracked against the underside of the bar."
