The reigning world champions prepare for their final two qualifying matches as they look to seal their place at Qatar 2022.
And if the Blues are one step away from qualifying, they will be without a talismanic presence during the last international break.
As revealed by But correspondent Marc Mechenoua, Pogba was unable to finish Monday’s session after joining the rest of his teammates from France.
The United star stopped during a drill with goalkeeper Alphonse Areola and limped towards the sideline in visible discomfort.
The bigger picture
Pogba’s injury setback comes at a time when his performance for United has come under intense scrutiny.
After receiving a red card in the club’s 5-0 humiliation against Liverpool, he was suspended for his final game – a 2-0 derby loss at the hands of rivals Manchester City.
The midfielder has at least found international football more rewarding, playing in both the semi-finals and the final as France won the UEFA Nations League earlier this year.
