United have denied that Pogba has asked for a pay rise, while stating the 25-year-old midfielder will not be sold following the end of the window for Premier League clubs.
Pogba has become one of the most consistent players at Manchester United over the last season, and has contributed 15 goals for the club in his 88 games there.
"He's more than ready but you can not have the players who arrived only last Monday after the World Cup semi-finals or final and three weeks' holiday".
This led to the 22-year-old being dropped for the FIFA World Cup with France while Pogba played a massive role in his country's triumph in Russian Federation.
The 2018-19 Premier League season officially begins on Friday when title contender Manchester United welcomes Leicester City to Old Trafford.
"He worked amazingly well Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday".
"This list of the injured players is an important list and today after training I will speak with that group of players because everybody is different - physically and mentally - and to see how available they feel they are because their feeling is very important and understanding how they think they can help or not help".
Tottenham make £25m bid to sign 22-year-old
If we are happy with our squad and can not improve our squad, sometimes it's better to keep our squad together. Alderweireld was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United but firm interest never materialised.
Mourinho will be considering whether to include the likes of Ashley Young, Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford, whilst Leicester boss Claude Puel will be assessing Maguire and Vardy. We don't have many solutions and want to go with everything we have.
"It is hard to understand for people in football that Tottenham didn't sign or didn't sell players but sometimes in football, you need to behave different".
Across town from Old Trafford, Manchester City have signed Daniel Arzani from Melbourne City, with the Australian youngster expected to go out on loan.
"I know from a very good source that Mourinho said he wanted Witsel, but not in the first place".
There has also been a long-term issue with Mourinho and winger Anthony Martial with the "Special One" wanting the club to offload the talented youngster as well.
Harry Maguire was a genuine target, and although no progress was ever made with Leicester, United are still admirers of the England player.
"You try to make a case and there is no case in it". For nine days he didn't train, so he's to start again.
