Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic could both join Jose Mourinho at Manchester United next season, according to widespread reports.

With United already in talks with Ibrahimovic's agent Mino Raiola, the Old Trafford club may extend those talks over Pogba, who is another client of the Italian-born agent.

Reports that Juventus are prepared to sell Pogba this summer has sparked suggestion that United is one of only a handful of possible destinations, with Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City and Chelsea also believed to be keen to sign the midfielder.

Pogba has previously expressed a reluctance to return to United, after his first spell in Manchester fell flat as disputes between the club and agent Raiola hastened his move to Juventus in 2012.

The Frenchman has since gone on to become one of the most talked about players in European football, with his price tag soaring to close to the £86m world record fee Real Madrid paid to sign Gareth Bale from Tottenham in the summer of 2013. 

Chelsea are strong contenders to sign Pogba, with new Blues boss Antonio Conte a huge admirer of the Frenchman he worked with during his time as Juve boss. 

Yet the presence of Mourinho at Old Trafford could now pave the way for one of the most remarkable comebacks, with the price United would have to pay to re-sign Pogba something of an embarrassment after his departure on a free transfer four years ago.

Meanwhile, United have let it be known that they are preparing for a huge summer of spending, as they look to add marquee signings to the squad Mourinho will look to reshape after he succeeded Louis van Gaal as the club's manager.
