Manchester United coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he isn't bothered about the reported meeting between Pogba and Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane.

The Frenchmen were pictured together in Dubai where Pogba was taking in some warm weather training as part of his injury rehabilitation during the international.

Zidane was a speaker at an Artificial Intelligence in Sports (DAIS) Conference in Dubai and took the timeout to meet with the midfielder who he wanted to bring to Madrid in the summer.

The meet-up in the Middle East has reenacted speculations that the Los Blancos would once again make a move for the World Cup winner when the transfer window reopens in January.

But Solskjaer whose side face table toppers, Liverpool on Sunday has responded to Pogba's encounter with the Galacticos head coach.

"I don't have a problem with that at all," the 45-year-old United boss told a press conference on Friday.

"He's been playing through the pain barrier. He's been criticised left, right and centre, but when he came back, Rochdale, Arsenal, he could have easily opted not to play in them. He wanted to play."

Pogba has been absent for four of United's last five games through injury and is most likely going to miss the weekend game against Jurgen Klopp's side.

United are currently languishing in 12th, with only nine points on the board after eight matches of the new season following their 1-0 loss to Newcastle before the international break.
