Injured midfielder Paul Pogba is close to returning to full fitness but the Frenchman may not kick the ball for the rest of the year as part of his strategy to force a move to Real Madrid.
The 26-year-old midfielder is tipped to return from the recuperating room in December, but The Sun claimed that the player is unwilling to feature for Solskjaer’s side as he is keen on joining the Spanish giants.
According to the British media, Pogba is not ready to return to the pitch and he is doing everything possible to complete his switch to Santiago Bernabeu in January.

Madrid have long been negotiating with the Red Devils for Pogba’s services but haven’t found a breakthrough yet.
It is also speculated that the Galacticos manager Zinedine Zidane is ready to offer either James Rodriguez or Gareth Bale in a player-plus-cash transfer deal in the upcoming transaction period.
Meanwhile, Juventus are also considering a move for the World Cup winner, three years after releasing him to Manchester United in 2016.
They hope to beat Los Blancos to his signature in January as they believe he will have a great attacking relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo on the pitch.
