Paul Pogba set to miss World Cup after midfielder picks up another injury

Paul Pogba is set to miss next month’s World Cup in Qatar.

That’s according to a recent report from Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport, who claim the French midfielder has picked up a thigh injury and is now very unlikely to be fit enough to feature for Didier Deschamps’ Les Bleus.

Despite leaving Manchester United nearly six months ago and rejoining Juventus on a free transfer, the 29-year-old playmaker has yet to make his second debut for the Old Lady.

Pogba’s agent Rafaela Pimenta has announced Paul’s imminent return after his long-injury: “The nightmare is finally over. Pogba will be Juventus new leader very soon”, tells Tuttosport ????? #Pogba
