Harry Maguire, who could face United for Leicester today, Bayern Munich's Jerome Boateng and Toby Alderweireld of Tottenham Hotspur were all linked with United, while Atletico Madrid's Diego Godin emerged as a late target yesterday.
He also won the World Cup this summer, starring for France as they beat Croatia in the final.
"But it's the same conversation as with (Ashley) Young, (Marouane) Fellaini, (Jesse) Lingard, it's the same".
Otherwise, Leicester have no injury worries, but the same can't be said for United who will be without Antonio Valencia, Marcos Rojo, Diogo Dalot, Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic. The boss explained that the midfielder is one of several players he will hold talks with to determine if they're able to contribute to the cause in Friday's opening game.

But Liverpool did its business early in splashing more than 170 million pounds (US$220 million) on Brazil goalkeeper Alisson Becker and midfielders Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri. "I am happy with all the players at the moment". "We have a very good squad, with very good players and it is very hard to add players to that", he said.
Pogba has had a rocky relationship with Mourinho in the last two years, and last season was repeatedly left out of key fixtures in the league and Europe.
