Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has done little to play down the links when he claimed he would love to work with his fellow countrymen.
According to The Sun, United want to open talks over a new contract to try and tie him down at Old Trafford, although they will have to meet his staggering demands if they want to keep him.
Pogba is said to be demanding parity with Alexis Sanchez who is the club's top earner on £500,000 per week.
The Frenchman is currently on closer to £300,000 and it is claimed agent Mino Raiola considers his client to be in a strong negotiating position because of the interest in him.
