Video: Paul Pogba not far from full fitness after long injury spell

by Marwan Harraz

Manchester United star Paul Pogba is seemingly edging closer to returning to full fitness having missed a chunk of action this season.

The talented Frenchman hasn’t been his usual self lately and much of that has had to two with him playing through the pain.

It soon became obvious it was affecting him too much so he had to take a proper rest and recover in order to get over his injury.

Scott McTominay and Fred have stepped up in his absence with some fans even calling for Pogba to now be pushed further forward.

It’s pretty easy to imagine the kind of damager the former Juventus man could cause playing as an attacking-midfielder but first Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have to make that decision.

There’s been some reports claiming Pogba is aiming to return by the Manchester City fixture but either way he’ll have to rebuild match fitness.

The playmaker has been out for too long and so can’t be thrown into the deep end and expected to perform.

Should United be in a better position by January, it could convince Pogba to remain at Old Trafford rather than seek a move to PSG or the determined Real Madrid.
