Paul Pogba — remember him?
Of course you do.
The Manchester United midfielder has been out of action since early September after suffering a hamstring injury against Basel in the Champions League.
He’s been recovering in Miami, with concerns — even from his own manager — that he could be set for a ‘long-term’ spell on the sidelines
But, according to reports in the British press on Thursday, we could be seeing Pogba back on the pitch sooner than expected.
The Independent is among the outlets suggesting that Manchester United believe Pogba could make his return as early as October 24, when United face Swansea in the League Cup.
If true, the news would be a major boost for José Mourinho’s side, who play Tottenham, Benfica and Chelsea in succession after the Swansea match.
With Marouane Fellaini also currently unavailable, there will be extra pressure for Pogba to return as soon as possible.
