When Man Utd think Paul Pogba can return from injury behind the scenes at Old Trafford

Manchester United think Paul Pogba could return from injury around the time of the March internationals, reports say. The Red Devils star, who wants to leave, has missed most of the campaign so far.

Manchester United fans last saw Pogba in action on Boxing Day, when he came off the bench in a 4-1 thumping of Newcastle.

The France international has missed most of the campaign through injury, managing to make just eight Premier League appearances so far.

Pogba is understood to want to leave United, with both Real Madrid and Juventus seen as potential destinations for the 2018 World Cup winner.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has regularly insisted that Pogba wants to play, however, shutting down conspiracy theorists who have suggested he’s just outwardly refusing to come back.

And the Telegraph say that, behind the scenes, United have floated the idea of a return around the time of the March internationals.

But, while that’s currently the case, much uncertainty surrounds Pogba and when he’ll be available again.

Pogba needs game time to boost his chance of making France’s squad for the European Championships this summer.

Yet when he actually makes it back onto the pitch is something only time will tell.

Pogba recently opened up on his injury hell – and admitted he was doing everything to ensure his recovery goes smoothly.

“Obviously [injuries] is something which will happen,” Pogba told KlitchskoOfficial, the Klitschko brothers’ official YouTube channel.

“You have to get ready for that. It can be very bad, or it can be a small injury.

“The most important thing is to come back and not to get injured again.

“So come back stronger. Be careful not coming back too early, and then obviously going back on the pitch and being better than when you left. That is my mindset and I will carry on doing this.

“The injury that I had was a twisted ankle. Someone tackled me from behind, so it’s not something you can prevent.”

Pogba also added that some injuries can be prevented, by making some small lifestyle changes.

“Muscle injuries, often they are with what you eat, the recovery, too much training and the sleeping,” he said.

“If you don’t sleep enough, you could get muscle soreness and muscle injuries.

“You have to eat healthy, rest a lot as well, train, get strength on your muscle to prevent those injuries, and after that you won’t get injured if you have those categories on point.”
