Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba will be back in full training at the start of next week, according to L’Equipe. The midfielder has been out since Boxing Day with an ankle injury but it appears the France international will feature once again for the Red Devils very soon.
The French newspaper report that the 26-year-old has an outside chance of playing against Manchester City in the derby on March 8th but the clash versus Tottenham on March 15th is looking like a more realistic target.
Fans on Twitter are happy to see Pogba finally making his comeback:
Awesome – I hope he comes back and gives 100% even if it’s only for a couple of months. Him and Fernandes in the same team could potentially get us up to 4th…

Fred, Fernandes, and Pogba – It may happen, but whether it lasts for long is another debate all together. Those 3 on top form would be able to rival any midfield in world football, but Pogba would need to commit to club and give his all on the pitch. Let’s see what happens.

It’s been a difficult season for the Frenchman, with his ankle having been a constant issue since the beginning of the campaign. However, there are promising signs that he is on the mend with the midfielder taking to Instagram earlier this week suggesting he is closing in on a return to training.
Pogba will, though, need some time to regain match sharpness, and supporters shouldn’t hold out for him starting the Manchester derby next month.
