According to the London Evening Standard, as reported by the Express, Jose Mourinho has lost his patience with the Frenchman, amid growing uncertainty about the forward's future.
The Mirror reported last month that United held talks with Bayern Munich over a potential £44.5m deal to sign the German World Cup victor following their friendly at the Allianz Arena in early August but once again they failed to get a deal agreed.
However, both clubs had seen Manchester United express an interest in Toby Alderweireld and Willian respectively, which may be the deciding factor in any deal.
Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville has insisted that the Red Devils "would be fine" if Paul Pogba left.
Additionally, Pogba's future at Old Trafford has been called into question as the player himself has done little to play down the possibility of a move away amidst links to Barcelona among other elite clubs.
Boateng, 30, considered leaving Bayern after seven years at the Allianz Arena.

"I feel well at Bayern".
Boateng added: "I called Jose Mourinho, I told him that his interest was an honor for me and thanked him for trying so hard for me".
"The owner in me would do what United are doing at the moment, saying he is not for sale".
"There are four ways to look at it", Neville told The Times.
"If I was still in that dressing room giving personal advice it would be, 'Paul, it's obvious you want to play somewhere else but be professional". You don't need to do that'.
Doucoure is likely to face off with Pogba in the Premier League clash, with the battle in the centre of the park always a pivotal one.
