PAUL POGBA is being linked with an early return from injury.
Jose Mourinho said before the international break that he feared the injury would be “long term”.
The French midfielder has missed the last five United games since limping out of the Champions League clash with Basel.
United have fared fine without him – winning all of their games, scoring 17 goals and conceding just two.
But record signing Pogba is one of Mourinho’s key men and the club have some huge tests on the horizon.
The report claims Pogba will return for the game against Swansea City.
United then face a tough slate of games, with Tottenham Hotspur, Benfica, Chelsea and Newcastle their four games after that.
Pogba has been recovering well after being sent to the US to get his fitness back.
He has filmed himself dancing and on a treadmill, uploading videos to social media, while he has also been pictured going through a gruelling fitness regime.
They have a fitness coach working with him on a daily basis but fear he will not be back on the pitch until closer to Christmas.
