It also claims that Pogba is a "favorite" of United chairman Ed Woodward, who is often credited with much of the say in transfer negotiations for the club.

It is understood Manchester United are now monitoring the situation with involving Mourinho and are would rather sack the Portuguese and bring in another manager than to sell Pogba.

However, the report states Pogba is not to the point where he wishes to force a transfer, with three years left on his contract at Manchester United.

FC Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde has admitted he is a big admirer of Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba amid reports linking the 2018 FIFA World Cup star with a move to the Blaugrana.

"You have to speak to Manchester United", added Raiola.

They want to keep Pogba anyhow.

Dembele also fuelled speculation over a potential move to the Gunners after he had dinner with several Arsenal players last week, including Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan. United have taken a stern stance in talks, insisting the World Cup victor is not for sale.

José Mourinho said that he would welcome any contributions made by Manchester United players who have recently returned from the World Cup.

According to the Times, the relationship between the pair has soured even further over the summer.

Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo reported earlier Monday that Pogba's agent, Mino Raiola, had travelled to England to negotiate his client's exit, with Barcelona and Juventus preferred destinations.

Juventus, the club Pogba played for in between his two stints at Old Trafford, are said to be keen to have him back.

It is yet to be seen if the 25-year-old will be involved in Friday's Premier League opener against Leicester after returning to training this week.
