However, if United decide they would rather keep Pogba and look for a new manager, it will cost them a staggering amount.

Mourinho has a deal at the Theatre of Dreams worth around £13.5million-a-year, until the summer of 2020.

United would have to pay off Mourinho the hefty amount if they decide to sack him unless he decides to walk away on mutual consent.

The Red Devils will be visiting the London Stadium to face West Ham who frustrated Chelsea to a goal-less draw on Saturday.

Meanwhile, had earlier reported Pogba was caught on camera giving a high-five to a member of the backroom staff before Mourinho appeared to say something to him.

The France international gave his boss a stony look in response before they walked together for a moment, with more words and frowns being exchanged.

In extended footage, which lasted for over two minutes, Pogba appeared to be outspoken - in whatever they were discussing - before they both walked away.
