Paul Pogba is back in Dubai, and making the most of the opportunity for some downtime, by the looks of it.

With the domestic season now over for the Manchester United star, he has been spending time in the Middle East and regularly keeping his 34 million Instagram followers updated.

On Tuesday he snapped himself at the airport, although it wasn't clear which airport he was at as he captioned his post "Daddy's life".

He then posted a video featuring his Bolivian girlfriend, Maria Zulay Salaues, who he tags as "zulaypogba" and gives the location as Dubai.

This was followed by an image from what The National has identified as the Hoseki restaurant at the Bulgari Resort Dubai.

The restaurant has only nine seats and is regarded as one of the most authentic Japanese experiences you'll find - you can read our experience of it here.

Prior to arriving in the UAE, Pogba spent time in Saudi Arabia where he visited Makkah to celebrate the holy month of Ramadan.

Pogba, 26, also went on pilgrimage to Makkah last summer before France's victorious World Cup campaign in Russia.

He was joined in Saudi Arabia by fellow Premier League player Kurt Zouma, and the pair were pictured standing in front of the Kaaba at the Grand Mosque, the holiest site of Islam, with the caption: "Never forget the important things in life."

A host of Premier League footballers have been spotted in the UAE during the past week.

Liverpool players Mohamed Salah, Georgino Wijnaldum and Virgil van Dijk were seen in Dubai, while Simon Mignolet and Fabinho were in Abu Dhabi.
