No January transfer? Pogba allegedly suffers injury that kept Neymar sidelined for almost 3 months
- United claim Paul is suffering from an ankle problem.
- As per reports in France, the midfielder actually has a small crack to his toe.
- Both player and club prefer 'natural' route to recovery instead of surgery.
- It's unlikely Pogba will join Real Madrid while injured.
According to L’Equipe, Paul Pogba is actually recovering from a small crack to his toe despite the official ankle injury report from Man United. An initial scan after the Carabao Cup clash revealed a 'microfisure', as per the source. The club's medical staff let the midfielder play with Arsenal 5 days later but he aggravated the problem against the Gunners.
The World Cup winner is now continuing his race to be fit for next week's Premier League tie with league leaders Liverpool in Dubai.
According to ESPN, Paul Pogba remains a priority signing for Zinedine Zidane despite the fact that Florentino Perez is eyeing a January move for Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen. However, if the worst fears are true and the Frenchman is indeed suffering from the bone fracture in his toe, Zizou's dreams about bringing Paul to the Bernabeu might be put on hold, at least until the next summer.
