Pogba has failed to hit the heights that were expected of him, while his relationship with Jose Mourinho is extremely strained.
Mourinho really, really wanted a central defender before the window slammed shut with a bunch of names linked with a transfer to Old Trafford.
Boateng had previously played in the Premier League for Manchester City, but the 30-year-old defender could not be tempted to leave Bayern, even if the thought of a new club intrigued him. It was no escape, but rather the thrill of a new challenge.

The Kerala nun , who has accused Bishop of Jalandhar of raping her multiple times, has written to The Vatican seeking justice . Terming the allegations against him as "serious", the bishop said only three persons knew the truth.
Pogba fuelled suggestions that he wants to leave with his comments during the recent global break, and it is widely thought that he will seek a move in either January or at the end of the season. I feel completely contented at Bayern - one of the biggest clubs in the world.
Doucoure told The Sun: 'I've known Paul since I played with him in the French Under-16 team and he was, physically, the same as he is today, because he was in advance of everyone.
Boateng has now admitted he did have the chance to join United, but added that he told Mourinho he would not leave Bayern unless he was 100% certain it was the right move. "Everything has to fall in place to top this club, if I do it. [Bayern Munich boss] Niko Kovac gave me the feeling that I am very important for him and the club". He won the Champions League with the side in 2013, six consecutive Bundesliga titles and three German Cups.
