Pogba, closer to returning with his future in the air

Paul Pogba will return to Manchester this weekend, after spending the last few weeks in Dubai recovering from a thigh muscle injury, and will meet manager Ralf Rangnick for the first time.

The French midfielder ends his contract with Manchester United on June 30 and still has a long period of absence, after injuring himself in the last international break with France, although United are confident that he can return to exercise in the coming weeks.

The Frenchman has not played for more than a month and traveled to Dubai to treat the injury. It will fly to the UK this Friday.

“I hope to speak with him on Sunday. So far we have only spoken on the phone,” Rangnick said at a press conference: “He is improving, but he still has a couple of weeks left until he can train again, and then other weeks later. until you are in shape. You have to be at your peak before exercising with the group again. “

Pogba’s future is unknown, with several ups and downs in recent months, from the Frenchman’s declaration of intent to leave, to his most recent predisposition to stay. The French midfielder will be able to negotiate with teams from outside the islands as of January 1.
