Pogba was a target when David Moyes was in charge and talks to bring the 21-year-old midfielder back to Old Trafford were at an advanced stage. Now new boxx Louis Van Gaal has also mentioned Pogba to United's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward who is in charge of transfers.

But it’s understood that United have been quoted a price of £60m for a player who was allowed to leave for just around £5m.

Van Gaal, who begins work at Old Trafford once he completes his World Cup commitments with Holland, has Pogba on his wanted list.
