Now, French publication L'Equipe claim that Zidane is eyeing a move to the Premier League.

"If that happens, I think we will see a breakout of peace between Pogba and Mourinho and Raiola and Man United".

The Bulgarian added: "I said last week that I thought Manchester United's game with Leicester would end in a low-scoring win and it ended up being a tight one". The Argentine somehow managed to impress Jorge Sampaoli and earned a call-up for the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Many United fans are unhappy with Jose Mourinho's demeanour and style of play, with some looking for him to be replaced in what is - historically - a crucial third season for Mourinho's reign.

Old Trafford boss Mourinho has "been at odds with United's hierarchy this summer", says the Metro, after a frustrating pre-season.

While Premier League clubs have seen their recruitment deadline pass, teams across Europe remain in the market for late additions in their respective windows.

Meanwhile, Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera is enjoying his time at the Red Devils and has hinted that he may be eyeing a new contract in the near future.

The 23-year-old left-back has endured a hard last few seasons, mainly due to fitness issues, and many expected him to leave Old Trafford this summer, a period fraught with weight concerns played out across social media. United finished above them last season.

Pogba confirmed his unhappiness at the club by telling reporters after the game that "There are things I can say and there are things that I cannot say, otherwise I will get fined".
