Manchester United midfielder Pogba facing surgery
Pogba's future at United remains the subject of much transfer speculation
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is set to undergo surgery to treat an ankle problem, his coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said on Wednesday, predicting the France international will be out of action for around a month.
"We've had scans, it's nothing major but it's something that has to be sorted and dealt with within a time frame," Solskjaer told a news conference after United's 2-0 defeat at Arsenal, which Pogba played no part in.
"He's been advised to do it as soon as possible. We've been without him all season, it's a big blow but we hope he'll be back within a month."
Pogba, who has been linked frequently with a potential move away from United, spent over two months sidelined with an injury to his left ankle and has only made eight appearances for his club in all competitions.
The former Juventus midfielder returned to action as a substitute in United's 2-0 defeat at Watford and also featured in their 4-1 win against Newcastle United on Dec. 26.
Pogba's future at United remains the subject of much transfer speculation, especially since recent comments from his agent Mino Raiola criticising the club.
"Now Pogba's problem is Manchester (United)," Raiola told the Italian newspaper, La Repubblica.
"It is a club out of touch with reality, without a sports project. I would no longer take anyone there. They would even ruin (Diego) Maradona, Pele and (Paolo) Maldini. Paul needs a club and a squad, one like Juventus was before."
