This is not Pogba’s first visit to Mecca having made the pilgrimage at the end of the 2016-17 season where he taught a local how to do his trademark dab celebration.

The Frenchman was undergoing the ‘umrah’ – the non-mandatory pilgrimage to Mecca that can be performed at any time of year.

It is not known whether Pogba will be fasting this month in observance of Ramadan as the 25-year-old has been included in France’s squad for the World Cup in Russia.

Didier Deschamps side are one of the favourites to go deep into the competition in Russia and Pogba is looking to shake his frustrations from club football.

Speaking to French TV channel Canal+ on Sunday, the box-to-box midfielder refused to rule out a summer exit from Old Trafford.

‘You’re never sure of anything,’ he said. ‘Contractually, it’s on, yes.’
