Manchester United Get Massive Boost Over Paul Pogba’s Injury
Manchester United have been buoyed by the news of Paul Pogba’s fitness following reports from France Football Federation confirming he will be out for a just two weeks.
The 23-year-old midfielder limped out of Manchester United’s game Europa League tie against Rostov last Thursday with fears that he might face a long spell on the sidelines. Pogba was also not part of the side that beat Middlesbrough on Sunday, intensifying worries that the extent of the former Juventus midfielder’s injury might be more than feared.
However, the France Football Federation have issued a statement allaying fears, confirming that Pogba will miss just two weeks of action. The Statement read: ‘Didier Deschamps has called up Monaco’s Tiemoue Bakayoko following the withdrawal of Paul Pogba, with medical tests confirming he will be unavailable for a fortnight,’
In related news, reports in the Daily Mirror claim that Tiemoue Bakayoko has rejected the chance to join the Red Devils in favour of a move to Chelsea despite reports that the Red Devils are keen on signing the 22-year-old from AS Monaco after scouting him on different occasions this season and even sent scouts to watch the central midfielder during clash against Manchester City in the Champions League.
