Immense, strong, and talented: Paul Pogba draws praise from Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs

Manchester: Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs was full of praise for French midfield sensation Paul Pogba, who remains a huge transfer target for many top football clubs across Europe.

The Juventus attacking midfielder is the most highly coveted footballer in Europe at the moment, with Manchester United looking to seal his return, while Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona are also interested in signing the 23-year-old.

He left United for free in 2012 to join Juventus, where he has blossomed into a star. Bringing him back to England would be an expensive exercise for United, but new chief coach Jose Mourinho could be tempted to spend around $130 million for Pogba, who scored in France's 5-2 quarter-final win over Iceland at Euro 2016 on Sunday.

Giggs' departure from United after 29 years of service was confirmed on Saturday, but he would be happy to see Pogba return, stating that the Frenchman has "everything" to his game.

“He's (Pogba) a talented player. He can shoot with both feet, pass the ball with both feet and you don't realise how big he is,” Giggs was quoted as saying by ITV on Sunday.

"Physically he's immense, he's strong, he's quick, and he's got everything."

United face an uphill battle to sign the Frenchman, with his agent Mino Raiola previously commenting that Real Madrid were leading in the race for Pogba's signature.

Pogba made 48 appearances in all competitions for Juventus this past season, helping the club clinch a Serie A and Coppa Italia double.
