Paul Pogba faces an ultimatum.
Paul Pogba could miss the World Cup in Qatar after picking up a knee injury in training with Juventus, reports suggest via Gazzetta dello Sport.
The Frenchman left Old Trafford under a grey cloud for a second time this summer when his contract expired.
If you speak to any United fan about his exit they are likely to tell you they’re not losing sleep over the fact he won’t be at the club next season. We were not sad to see him go.
The 29-year-old was seen limping out of a training session in Los Angeles during Juve’s pre-season tour. Much to Pogba’s displeasure, scans later revealed he had suffered a torn meniscus and surgery may be required.
He has since returned to Turin to see a specialist.
The report claims Pogba has two options. One would see part of the meniscus removed, which could rule Juventus’ new signing out for up to two months. The second would be to stitch the tear and could potentially see him out of action for up to five months.
This will possibly come down to whatever advice is recommended by the specialists.
Missing out of the World Cup wouldn’t make for a good documentary as France look to defend their status as world champions.
