Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba will return to training within the next ten days, according to the Sun. The Frenchman has been out since September with an ankle injury but it’s claimed that he should be back in contention by the 6th December if everything goes to plan.
It’s highly unlikely that he’ll be fit enough to play in the Manchester derby on the 7th December, and he is still set to miss games against Astana, Aston Villa and Tottenham.
However, with nine games next month, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be delighted to welcome back Pogba after missing ten matches for the Red Devils.
The France international has been stepping up his recovery after having his cast removed from his ankle, but he still needs to strengthen the muscles in his legs after being out of action for the best part of two months.
United have struggled for creativity in central midfield in Pogba’s absence with Gary Neville very critical of the lack of depth in the middle of the pitch after the draw against Sheffield United.
