United insist Pogba is not for sale, just 48 hours before Jose Mourinho's side kick off their Premier League campaign at home to Leicester, less than 24 hours left to England's end of summer transfers at 5pm on Thursday.
United voted against the early closing of the transfer window when it was put to the Premier League previous year and feel that decision has been vindicated by the prices being quoted to them by European clubs trying to take advantage of the situation.
United were awarded a penalty in the opening two minutes when Daniel Amartey handled the ball, and after Pogba tried to take the ball to the spot, he was met by an insistent Sanchez.
José Mourinho explains choice to make Paul Pogba captain vs. Leicester
I think one defensive mistake and probably the linesman could help him and give a free-kick against Leicester. We have big and multi-functional coaching staffs, and I think we are more the head coach than the manager.
The early confidence soon dissipated, however, and Leicester were unlucky to go in at half-time trailing, with impressive debutant James Maddison drawing a marvellous save from David de Gea in the 29th minute.
Andreas Pereira, making his first United appearance since February 2016, looked sharp in midfield as did Pogba, who saw a long-range shot denied before Shaw's tried his luck.
However, Mourinho still has a very talented group of players to work with and we shouldn't forget they finished second last season but Man Utd will be determined to close the gap after finishing 19 points adrift of champions Man City.

Their best chance for a stretch came when skipper Pogba threaded through Sanchez, whose laid off for Juan Mata to get away a shot that was deflected just wide. Eric Bailly did superbly to deny Iheanacho, and Vardy bundled Shaw off the ball to send in a cross that Gray nearly flicked home.
From the looks of pre-season it doesn't seem like Fred will need much time to settle in and with this likely being Jose Mourinho's last season to prove himself, he'll need United's new boy to hit the ground running.
"It's important to win and play well, we played well in periods against a good team that invest more than us. We must get used to teams who have players of the same quality that we have", he said.
