Paul Pogba will return to Man Utd training next week after getting green light from club doctors in huge injury boost

PAUL POGBA will return to full training in the coming week after getting the green light from the Manchester United doctors.

Pogba has not pulled on a red shirt for two months after damaging a thigh on international duty with France.

It has been a difficult rehab for the Frenchman, who spent some time in Dubai in a bid to get back to action before the end of January. 

Now there is light at the end of the tunnel after he did some light running with his conditioners at Carrington last week.

The news is a huge injury boost to boss Ralf Rangnick who feared he would be without the midfielder for another few weeks.

United’s medical staff are poised to let him rejoin the main group later this week. 

Pogba, 28, has impressed Rangnick with his attitude and it is understood the midfielder has targeted a first team return by the end of January.

He is in the final six months of his deal at United and can speak to interested clubs on the continent about a free transfer in the summer.

Yet insiders insist that has not stopped Pogba from getting his head down and focusing on returning to help United’s push for a top four finish. 

Rangnick was still insisting that it will be a while before the World Cup winner is fully back in the swing of things ahead of Monday's FA Cup tie with Villa.

He said: “I was told a week ago, it would be a minimum of at least another four or five weeks before he is fit for training again.

“I saw him this morning before the training session, he was in the locker room, and I hope he will be back as soon as possible.

“It’s one thing to be training fit but, on the other hand, he needs to be fit for the match and competition in either the Premier League or the Champions League and this will still take some time.”
