Real Madrid have entered the race to sign Paul Pogba from Juventus, competing with the likes of Manchester City and Manchester United who are expected to enter a bidding war for the player.

The club's Castilla coach Zinedine Zidane, has heaped praise on the player for his talent and industry and insists that all top clubs including Madrid are interested in his services.

City were believed to be preparing an £86m bid for the player in the summer, surpassing Gareth Bale's world record transfer fee to Madrid but have to fend off competition from the 10-time European champions, who have the firepower to match any bid put forth by the clubs.

Meanwhile, United are likely to get back into the race for the player, after their bid to sign Gareth Bale for a reported £100m($156.1m) fee was rejected. Louis van Gaal had earmarked Pogba as the man to lead his midfield but the interest has gone off the boil, with the club now looking at a move for Ilkay Gundogan and Morgan Schneiderlin.

Zidane believes that the player is extraordinary in the way he carries himself on the field and his qualities mean that he would be a success at any club in the world.

"He has everything. I think that he's fantastic. What I like about him is that he has it all," Zidane told radio station RTL.

"He is a complete player who also has the ability to score goals because he likes to get forward. In terms of footballing qualities, he is extraordinary.

"A lot of clubs are interested in him and so are Real. It is natural that talented players are of interest to all the big clubs.

"For his continued growth it is important that he has a healthy environment and I hope that he will always have that," he added.

Pogba's contract with Juventus expires in 2019, having recently led his side to the finals of the champions League in Berlin, where they were undone by the brilliance of Barcelona.
