Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is reportedly putting in extra individual training sessions at the club’s Carrington complex and should return to full training by the end of the week.
The Frenchman had a surgery for a nagging ankle problem in January and he has since been on the sidelines due to the rehabilitation process.
Earlier this month, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed that the midfielder could feature in regular training in the second week of March and Manchester Evening News reports that he is on schedule.
Pogba previously suffered a recurrence of the ankle injury after he was rushed back to first-team football and Solskjaer will surely remain more patient with the 26-year-old this time around.
Obviously, it requires around 10 days to two weeks to get into shape for competitive action and Pogba could possibly make an appearance in the FA Cup quarter-final at Norwich City before the international break.
Pogba’s future with United remains uncertain with the regular speculation in the media, but the fans would no doubt relish the prospect of the Frenchman playing alongside winter signing Bruno Fernandes.
Fernandes has already made a huge impression with five goal-scoring contributions (three goals and two assists) from as many league appearances and Pogba is said to be looking forward to developing a partnership with the Portuguese.
Manchester United will be in Europa League action on Thursday night when they face Austrian side LASK. They will make the trip to the Linzer Stadium for the first leg of the round of 16 tie.
