Pogba declared he was ready for a new challenge in July but a bid from Real failed to materialise as United played hardball.
The Frenchman, 27, started in the 4-0 opening day win over Chelsea at Old Trafford earlier this month.
But his long-term future at United is far from certain.
And it’s said that Real will make one last offer to lure Pogba to the Bernabeu.
However, SunSport understands that Zidane’s top target is Christian Eriksen.

The Dane is much more realistic target for Los Blancos after entering the final year of his Tottenham contract.
Real are ready to launch a deadline day £60m bid to force Daniel Levy’s hand.
But the Spurs chief is happy to lose Eriksen on a free transfer in 2020, with Spurs unable to land a replacement until January at the earliest.
