It has been reported that Pogba is not too far away from a return, although his availability for United’s next game – against Liverpool on October 20 – remains in significant doubt.
He missed recent matches against Leicester and West Ham due to an ankle injury, before returning to face Rochdale and Arsenal.
He then sat out of both a trip to AZ Alkmaar and United’s defeat by Newcastle last Sunday.
In fact, Pogba has only played in one win so far this season, albeit a comprehensive one, over Chelsea on the first day of the season.
