United have been heavily linked with a move for Dybala in recent weeks as manager Jose Mourinho targets a second striker or 'number 10', and interest in Antoine Griezmann is rumoured to have significantly cooled.
Pogba is believed to have played a pivotal role in convincing Romelu Lukaku to join United in a £75m deal in the summer, and the Daily Mirror claims the Frenchman could be back in a similar role in persuading Dybala to also make the switch to Old Trafford.
Pogba and Dybala are former teammates, spending one season together at Juventus before the dynamic midfielder sealed a world record move to England in 2016. It was only a single campaign, but the pair are said to have become good friends.
Dybala, who inherited Pogba's number 10 shirt in Turin, started the 2017/18 season on fire, scoring 10 times in his first six Serie A games. That flurry of early goals slowed down in October and November, but the Argentine bagged a brace in his most recent appearance.
Dybala has been a full Argentina international since 2015 and is expected to be part of his country's squad for this summer's World Cup. It may be in United's interest to try and secure a deal before the tournament in case his value soars as a result of his performances in Russia.
