The 26-year-old has been out of action since United's 1-1 draw against Arsenal, where it was revealed soon after that Pogba had actually been playing for a number of weeks despite having a minor injury.
Speaking in an interview earlier this week, Van der Sar suggested that returning to United remained a goal of his.
"And the last club of my career (Manchester United) also gave me a lot of attention, recognition and everything, developed at a later stage". And of course, I'd be interested in a position.
Sources have told ESPN FC that a number of major brands have expressed an interest in becoming United's principal shirt sponsor and the club are confident of negotiating a deal that would exceed GM's £450m seven-year agreement despite a poor start to the season.
Are Man Utd more attractive than Ajax? Sir Alex Ferguson's reign, aided by Van der Sar, was one of the most successful in history and guided them to the pinnacle of world football.
Ajax, on the other hand, are flying.
They have won the FA Cup, the League Cup and the Europa League in that time, but failed to qualify for the Champions League last season.
Erik ten Hag is doing a phenomenal job in Amsterdam and his name has been mentioned as a potential candidate to replace Solskjaer should he leave Manchester United. Now we can't get too carried away because they won't go down, but it that was another side - maybe a newly promoted one - who couldn't find the back of the net and struggled to put Ws on the board we'd be saying something different.
