The United midfielder has a tense relationship with Jose Mourinho, according to reports, and has been linked with a move to Barcelona.
The World Cup winner with France has captained United in their first two Premier League games, scoring twice, but told reporters he feared getting fined if he opened up on his happiness at Old Trafford.
“We would be happy to have him (Pogba) here,” Pique said. “I know little about what he is going through in Manchester and the relationship that exists (between Mourinho and Pogba).
“Pogba is a very good player, but a Manchester United player right now and we’ll see if something happens in the future.”
Barcelona have made four signings in the summer window, including Malcom and Arturo Vidal, and can still complete transfers until the August 31 Spanish deadline.
Pique, who left Manchester United just before Pogba arrived at Old Trafford, was often very complimentary when discussing Barcelona targets Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele last year. “I think players still want to join Barcelona, and they are showing that as is the case with Coutinho and Demble,” he said a year ago.
“One by putting in a transfer request and the other with his actions at Dortmund. It suggests that they are both delighted about the idea of coming. They want to come.”
