The Frenchman has been out for over a month thanks to the injury he picked up against Everton on 6 February, but he could be back in action as soon as Thursday night in the huge Europa League clash with AC Milan.
The Red Devils could only manage a 1-1 draw with the Italians at Old Trafford, as a last minute Simon Kjaer header cancelled out an Amad Diallo opener, and the pressure is on as they head to Milan.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has suggested that Pogba could be available to him for the trip and the midfielder sounds like he is very keen to be involved.
‘Let’s get back to work, fellas,’ Pogba wrote on Instagram on Tuesday after returning to training with the rest of the first team.
Pogba also posted a picture of him with a returning Edinson Cavani in training as the Uruguayan has also been out with injury, but Solskjaer expects to have him back for the trip to Milan.
‘Injury-wise, I hope we have four or five players back for that game,’ Solskjaer said on Sunday after beating West Ham in the Premier League.
‘It’s very likely Edinson and Anthony [Martial] are fit. Donny [Van de Beek] hopefully as well.
‘Paul even might make the trip. And David [De Gea] is back from isolation.
‘That’s more numbers. Today you can see we even had two goalkeepers on the bench so we need them back of course.’
Dean Henderson has largely been impressive in the Spaniard’s absence, but Kjaer’s goal for AC Milan was thanks to a mistake from the Englishman as he should have saved the effort. from a corner.
De Gea was the number one before his departure, and remains the highest-paid goalkeeper in the world, but there is no guarantee that he will hold onto his position in the first team.
