Paul Pogba has been out of training since Boxing Day last year. The midfielder underwent surgery on his ankle in January. He has been recovering from that injury in Dubai over the last couple of weeks. However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had earlier said that Pogba is 'nowhere close to making a return.' Solskjaer was quoted saying that "Pogba has not been part of team training yet. He's not anywhere near that yet. As a player, the last thing you want to be is injured, and not being able to contribute to your team. Paul's a footballer and he wants to play football. He knows he has to work hard now. He's been out for so long now, it's a challenge for him as well to get back into shape. I've been injured for a long time myself, it's a difficult period of your career, but it's part and parcel of being a player. He's taken off his cast, so when he comes back here we'll integrate him with us. Hopefully soon. He's started running on the treadmill now, so he's getting closer. Hopefully, we'll see him back soon." The 'When is Paul Pogba coming back' story, therefore, is bound to go on for a while.
