Real Madrid are also believed to be keen on luring Pogba to Spain but they have been put off by the astronomical valuation put on his head by Juventus.
Any talks with Pogba will have to wait until next week at the earliest, with the midfielder preparing for France's Euro 2016 final showdown with Portugal at the Stade de France on 10 July.
"Do I think he wanted to go to Manchester United [and play in the] Europa League?"
Mino Raiola, Pogba's agent, has told The Times that his client may well stay in Turin past this window.
Pogba was in sparkling form last season as he helped Juventus win a domestic double, but the 23-year-old has made a decision to link up with Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford, according to highly reliable French daily L'Equipe.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid dropped out of the race for Pogba, with president Florentino Perez unwilling to put £100 million and the same wage offer on the table.
Any deal for Pogba looks sure to be more complicated to negotiate, and is likely to cost United in excess of the world-record £85m Real paid Tottenham for Gareth Bale in 2013.
United now looks the likelier destination, with Raiola already having moved two of his clients - Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan - to Old Trafford this summer.
United are willing to pay Pobga £11.5m a year in a package that could cost in excess of £150m, with the player set to be handed a five-year deal.
The Portuguese was a part of his nation's European Championship contingent which beat Pogba's France in the final.
The Spaniard, who's controversial comments have also grabbed the headlines in recent years, had some harsh words for the new United boss, but also wished him well in his career in England.
