Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is closing in on a return to full fitness according to his manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Red Devils boss gave an injury update on Paul Pogba and Diogo Dalut during his pre-match press conference ahead of Carabao cup game with Colchester United today (Wednesday).

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was asked by reporters if any of the Old Trafford injured players might return.

He responded by saying:

“Maybe Diogo Dalot after he’s had a week of training, but probably no one else,” said Ole.

Ole Gunnar Solkjaer then provided update on Paul Pogba:

“Of all things he’s now struck down with illness and he’s been off for two or three days. That’s not beneficial and that’s probably set him back quite a bit.

“As I’ve said so many times, Paul is a top player that we want to see playing his best football at Man United.

“We just need to get him match fit. He might be half an hour, 45, 60, 90 minutes – who knows – in the first game. We’re working hard to get him back, but now he’s ill.

Paul Pogba has not played for Manchester United for three months dating back to the Arsenal game at the end of September.

The Frenchman played the entire duration of the Premier League clash with the Gunners which ended in a 1-1 draw at home.

Pogba has struggled to overcome an ankle problem since the Arsenal game.

The French World Cup winner initially sustained the ankle injury during the league game at Southampton in August and that ruled him out for some weeks before the Rochdale game in the Carabao Cup game in September.

Paul Pogba has made just six appearances in all competitions for Manchester United in this campaign.
