Paul Pogba’s return to Manchester United first team action could be delayed as the club weighs up the options surrounding his fitness, reports say.
The France international could undergo surgery on the hamstring injury that forced him off in United’s 3-0 Champions League win against Basel on September 12, which would see him face a longer spell out of action.
Jose Mourinho admitted that he was unsure of a timeline for Pogba’s return, claiming he was unsure whether he’d be out for ’12 weeks or 12 days’.
But as speculation mounts about when he could make a comeback, United are still deciding whether he should go under the knife next week, according to ESPN.
The decision is set to be made in the coming days, with Pogba set to travel to Finland should they opt for surgery as the best course of action.
The 24-year-old is out of United’s trip to Southampton on Saturday and is expected to miss games against CSKA Moscow and Crystal Palace ahead of the international break.
By then, there will be a much better idea just how lengthy his spell on the sidelines will be.
