Pogba's agent Mino Raiola, according to reports, has travelled to Manchester in an effort to force through a move to Spanish champions Barcelona before the transfer window closes.
Juventus have also been linked to their former player, with reports saying they could offer play-maker Miralem Pjanic in part-exchange.
Speaking ahead of the World Cup, Pogba admitted to having "small issues" with United boss Jose Mourinho last season.
Mourinho, who demanded more consistency from Pogba during the previous campaign, believes the World Cup was the "perfect habitat" for the midfielder and has challenged him to give the "best he has" for United this term.
