Manchester United fans have been plagued with worries ever since Paul Pogba was ruled out through injury. The world-class midfielder suffered a hamstring problem during the Red Devils’ Champions League triumph against FC Basel.

The six weeks since the absence of the Frenchman have been undoubtedly daunting, and there has been a visible difference in United’s attacking intent, or the lack of it. However, supporters might have joyous tidings in sight.

As per L’Equipe, Pogba might be able to regain fitness in time to face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League. This would put his return at somewhere around November 5.

Incidentally, the French national team also goes up against Wales on November 10, and will also lock horns with Germany on the 15th.

Whether or not Pogba will feature in all of those encounters remains doubtful. It is certain that Mourinho will be looking to ensure that the club’s record signing will have ample time to regain his form. In an attempt to achieve the same, the ex-Chelsea boss has sent the dabber to Miami, to speed up the process of recovery.

In an Instagram post, Pogba revealed precisely what he has been doing in the sunny city. He can be seen jogging quite well, and an untrained eye might think him to be fit already. However, the 24-year-old will have to be extra careful.

A rushed comeback would only serve to worsen his situation, as it might lead to more injuries in the future. While United are certainly eager to welcome him back into the heart of their attacking plays, a fully fit Pogba is what Old Trafford will look forward to.
