The Manchester United legend was full of praise for the France midfielder who remains a huge transfer target for many top clubs, including the Premier League side

Ryan Giggs was thoroughly impressed by Paul Pogba's display for France in their 5-2 win over Iceland on Sunday.

The midfielder is the most highly coveted player in Europe at the moment, with Manchester United looking to seal his return to Old Trafford, while Real Madrid and Barcelona are also interested in signing him.

The 23-year-old 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 coach Jose Mourinho could be tempted to spend around the £100 million on the 23-year-old, 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 he has "everything" to his game.

"He's a talented player," Giggs said on ITV.

"He can shoot with both feet, pass the ball with both feet and you don't realise how big he is.

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

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