Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has been fancied to make his injury comeback following the conclusion of the winter break.
The Frenchman has been out of action since the Boxing Day clash against Newcastle United but it appears that he is close to making his return after his ankle operation.
According to The Express, the midfielder has not been included in the squad for the training camp in Marbella in order to continue his rehabilitation following his recent surgery.
The same publication claims that the 26-year-old will seek to improve his fitness in the coming days such that he is available for selection against Chelsea in the Premier League on February 17.
Pogba has sustained multiple ankle injuries this season and on each occasion, he has been rushed back to first-team action which has contributed to a relapse of the same problem.
As such, it would be wise to delay his comeback to the playing field and it would come as a huge surprise, if he makes the starting lineup for the Blues clash at Stamford Bridge.
Meanwhile, McTominay is likewise going through his recovery after his knee ligament injury but he has no chance of making his comeback for the forthcoming Premier League game.
Instead, the meeting against Watford on February 23 has been earmarked as a probable return date for him and the availability of the duo would definitely provide the team with a huge lift in the coming months.
