Pogba has clashed repeatedly with Manchester United boss Mourinho in recent months, with the two men both enduring a power struggle.
And ESPN says the United midfielder feels the club will back him over the 55-year-old if the situation worsens.
Pogba and his agent, Mino Raiola, both feel as though the player holds all the aces.
His sheer marketability makes him an important asset for a club of United's massive financial and economic might.
As a result, they would likely be more inclined to stick with Pogba and, if results worsen, axe Mourinho.
