Man Utd hiding Paul Pogba injury truth as squad think star is forcing Real Madrid transfer

Manchester United star Paul Pogba has fully recovered from his injury and the Red Devils are hiding the truth about the reason for his current absence.

Spanish radio station COPE say the midfielder hasn’t been playing becuase he’s refusing to feature for United, in a bid to force a January transfer to Real Madrid.

The club didn’t want Pogba’s refusal to play to become public, so they chose to hide it through claiming he is still injured after a foot problem.

It is said that United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has now accepted that Pogba will leave the club during January, but he still wants as large a transfer fee as possible for the World Cup winner.

Public knowledge that Pogba is refusing to play for the Red Devils would surely drive any potential transfer fee down.

But, United are still hoping for around £130million for the France international say COPE.

Pogba hasn’t featured for United since their 1-1 draw against Arsenal at Old Trafford, on September 30.

He’s had a persistent ankle problem, stemming from an injury he picked up in August.

Solskjaer recently revealed that he hopes Pogba will be ready he action again shortly, but his team-mates also believe he will be on his way when the transfer window opens.

He recently had a cast removed, and has since posted a video on social media showing him playing basketball.

But, the manager thinks Pogba is still “a little while” away from featuring for Manchester United.

“He’s improving,” said Solskjaer. “Obviously when you’re in a cast for that long you do lose your muscle and gradually you have to step it up.

“He’s not started on his football work yet and it will still be a little while before we see him.

“He had another test and scan just at the start of the international break and it’s not healed yet.

“But he’s stepping up the recovery, so he doesn’t have to have the cast on.

“He’s been out of the cast for six or seven weeks, so he’s gradually now stepping up, walking on the treadmill, biking.

“It’ll still be a few weeks. We hope to see him in 2019, yeah.”
