Injured Pogba could be out for three months


French international Paul Pogba could be out of action for three months , the Sunday Times reported on Sunday, dealing a huge blow to Manchester United.

The hamstring injury suffered by the 24 -year-old — an £ 89 . 3 million ($ 121 million, 105 million euros ) signing from Juventus last year — after just 18 minutes in Tuesday ’ s Champions League match with Basel is worse than was thought originally according to a club source .

The source said he faced sitting on the sidelines of anything from six to 12 weeks.
“ The injury is really bad , ” a United source was quoted as saying by the newspaper .

However , the club believe Pogba ’ s injury was a result of the player overdoing his personal training outside of the club’ s supervision.
“ It ’ s not normal for a player respecting our training programme , ” the source said .

According to the newspaper , Pogba is keen to go to the United States to undergo treatment and rehabilitation with a group of personal trainers he used while on holiday there in the close season .

Should United’ s worst fears be realised Pogba would miss five Champions League games plus Premier League meetings with Liverpool , Tottenham Hotspur , Chelsea , Arsenal and Manchester City.
