Manchester United are hoping that Paul Pogba can return to the club fit after the midfielder suffered an injury scare with France.
Reports from RTL France claim that Pogba missed training on Sunday after contracting a contusion in his left foot and will be accessed today before they make a decision on whether to send him back to the UK.
Pogba played 89 minutes in the friendly win over Ivory Coast on Friday and preliminary reports state that the Sunday withdrawal was as a result of precaution and not thought to be anything serious.

Pogba’s United teammate Raphael Varane had to be substituted in the game against Ivory Coast with an injury scare too in what might be a blow for manager Ralf Rangnick who will want all his players fit ahead of the season finale.
United face Leicester City at Old Trafford on Saturday and will be hoping to close the gap between them and Arsenal in the race for a top-four spot.
