Ryan Giggs has hailed France midfielder Paul Pogba as a player who "has everything", as the Juventus star continues to be linked with a return to Manchester United.

Giggs saw a young Pogba come through the ranks at United before he left following a contract dispute in 2012, but he is now being linked with a world record move back to Old Trafford.

Pogba's camp have hinted that he would prefer to seal a move to Real Madrid, but United are believed to be offering the most lucrative deal to sign the 23-year-old, who looks certain to make a move this summer.

While Giggs is no long associated with United after confirming the end of his 29-year association with the club on Saturday, it is clear that he believes Pogba could be a big hit at Old Trafford if he returned.

"He's 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 told ITV Sport.

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

Jose Mourinho is set to be asked about his interest in Pogba when he faces the media for the first time as United manager on Tuesday.
