They may be rivals on the football pitch, but Paul Pogba and Kurt Zouma look to be the best of pals when off it.

Manchester United star Pogba has been enjoying a summer break in Dubai after the end of the football season, and he was joined by fellow Frenchman Zouma at the Bulgari Resort. Pogba has been staying at the ultra-high-end resort for the past few days.

Zouma spent last season on loan at Everton from parent club Chelsea.

Pogba made it known to his 34 million Instagram followers that Zouma was in town by sharing a video of the pair in high spirits at the luxury resort on Jumeirah Bay Island, where a deluxe suite currently costs from about Dh3,000 a night.

This isn't the first time the pair have been away together this summer - they also went to Makkah in Saudi Arabia to celebrate the holy month of Ramadan.

Pogba, 26, also took pilgrimage to Makkah last summer ahead of France's victorious World Cup campaign in Russia.

He has been staying in Dubai with his Bolivian girlfriend, Maria Zulay Salaues, who has also been showcasing their trip on Instagram.

Pogba filmed a short clip inside the Dubai Mall, while Salaues, who posts under the tag "zulaypogba" also took to social media with an image from the mall and another snap from the beach.

On Thursday, Pogba was at the Bulgari's Hoseki restaurant which has only nine seats and is regarded as one of the most authentic Japanese restaurants you'll find in the city - you can read our experience of it here.

There is mounting speculation that Pogba could move on from Manchester United this summer, with a number of Europe's biggest clubs - including Real Madrid - reportedly interested in signing him.

Although Pogba has remained tight-lipped, United may struggle to keep their biggest asset after they missed out on qualifying for next season's Champions League.
