Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Provides (Another) Update Paul Pogba's Return From Injury

In news that will have Graeme Souness and Roy Keane foaming at the mouth with rage for absolutely no reason, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has provided ​an update of the fitness of perpetually absent haircut and crisp enthusiast Paul Pogba. 

The Frenchman has endured an injury-hit season, with a recurrent ankle complaint restricting him to just eight appearances in all competitions. Pogba last played 90 minutes for the side who spent £93.2m on him three and a half years ago back in September.


After making a brief return over the festive period - enjoying a 45-minute cameo against Newcastle on Boxing Day - the 26-year-old has been absent ever since. 

In January, Solskjaer announced that the midfielder required surgery on his ankle and his lengthy recovery does not appear to have an end in sight. 

"Paul's still working with the physios outside. He won't be training with the first team until next week, so then let's see how long that will take. But he’ll need some time to train, to get his call it football fitness back," the United boss revealed (via ​Simon Peach).

The lack of timescale on the Frenchman's return raises questions over whether he has played his last game for the Red Devils. Pogba's desire to leave in the summer was a matter of public record and ​Real Madrid are understood to retain some interest in bringing the World Cup winner to the club in the summer. 

Most recently, it was reported that Los Blancos were planning a ​lowball offer of around £50m for the player. However, 90min understands that although United would be willing to part ways with the midfielder, the club are holding out to receive an offer that would recoup the majority of the fee they paid for the former Juventus man.
