Fresh from a well-deserved break after winning the World Cup with France, Pogba has linked up again with his United team-mates at the Aon Training Complex this week.
The Manchester United boss cut a frustrated figure through the window as Ed Woodward failed to land his top targets.
But an inconsistent defense may get a test from England global striker Jamie Vardy, though the Foxes did lose their best player - Riyad Mahrez - in the summer as he was sold to Manchester City.
However, Eurosport understand from reliable sources close to the club that Pogba has not made any financial demands to the club.
A new season begins tomorrow with Manchester United looking to catch up to neighbours City.
Leicester manager Claude Puel must similarly decide whether to include Jamie Vardy and Harry Maguire.
The centre-back discussion has only become an issue this summer, and the club have felt that the options open to them have not warranted the investment they would have required.
"If you compare with Europe, you are at a complete disadvantage and it does not help the clubs in the Premier League", Pochettino said on Spurs' tour of the United States.
"It was more down to Mourinho's pragmatism and I'm not sure how much longer the players will put up with it". He said on Thursday that some of Paul Pogba, Ashley Young, Fellaini and Jesse Lingard may yet be involved against Leicester.
Asked if he had the tools to compete without new signings, Mourinho said: "I have my players, I like my players, I like to work with my players".
The Portuguese went some way to countering suggestions he is unhappy with his squad at his pre-match press conference.
"Because you're not telling me Man United couldn't go out there and spend money on players". You have to try your best to get points and even with the difficulties that we had with our pre-season, now I don't think is the time to be speaking about that.
