Paul Pogba agonized a thigh injury while on international responsibility with France last week and is in Dubai for speed up recovery.
Pogba suffered the injury in training while on international duty with France last week ahead of their World Cup qualifiers against Kazakhstan and Finland.
Manchester United leader Ole Gunnar Solskjaer states France midfielder should aim a festive return to action.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer acknowledged it will be weeks rather than months that Paul Pogba will be out bruised, but gave the Man Utd midfielder a target return date of just following Christmas.
“I would say months rather than weeks,” Solskjaer said when asked for Pogba’s comeback date. “It was a disappointing injury for Paul. I’m not a doctor of course and we can’t say how quickly it will heal.
“Sometimes you hope for six or seven weeks and the worst case scenario is 10, 11, 12 weeks with muscle injuries like this. One thing I’m sure of is that Paul is determined to come back and give his best when he comes back and he’s already started that recovery with his own big mentality to come back stronger.
“Hopefully just after Christmas we can see him.”
One answer to fill the Pogba at Old Trafford is Donny van de Beek.
