The Manchester United midfielder is currently dating and rumoured to be engaged to a Bolivian model - but who is she and why does she live in the US?

Paul Pogba returned to Manchester United from Juventus in 2016 for the then record fee of £89 million ($105m) making him the world's most expensive footballer in 2017.

The France international has since then achieved many victories for both club and country by playing a part in winning the 2018 World Cup, as well as helping Manchester United win the League Cup and Europa League in the 2016-17 season. 

Not much is known about the couple's relationship, but Goal brings you everything we know...

Who is Maria Zulay Salaues?

Model Maria Zulay Salaues was born in 1996 and is from Bolivia, but currently resides in the United States.

She initially studied Business Administration at the University of Bolivia but dropped out to emigrate to California where she worked as a real estate agent. She then quit real estate to pursue a modelling career.

How did Maria meet Pogba?

It's not known when the pair first met, however they were spotted out together in Los Angeles in summer 2017. This was the same time that Pogba took part in the International Champions Cup (ICC) in the US for Man Utd.

Due to working commitments, Salaues spends most of her time in Miami, although she's been spotted more frequently in Manchester with the midfielder recently, sparking rumours she may be moving to be closer to Pogba.

Salaues was also spotted in Russia watching France's World Cup games throughout the tournament, often seated with Pogba's mum.

Does Maria Zulay Salaues attend Man Utd games?

Apart from attending many of Pogba's international games to cheer on France in their World Cup-winning campaign, Salaues has also attended a few of his Manchester United games. 

The 23-year-old was spotted at Old Trafford towards the end of the 2017-18 season on numerous occasions.

What does the future hold?

Speculations of the pair getting engaged were sparked during the World Cup after Salaues was seen wearing a diamond ring. Although no confirmation of this has been made.

Salaues also doesn't appear in any photos on Pogba's Instagram page. However, it's rumoured that the Bolivian model may be moving to Manchester and could move in with the Frenchman.
