Paul Pogba takes another step towards a comeback at Man United's training ground

Paul Pogba is closing in on a first team return with Manchester United after reports suggest has stepped up his training with club’s second string players in recent days.

Pogba has not played for United since injuring his hamstring in a Champions League game against Basel on September 12th, with reports suggesting he could be back mid-way through last month proving to be wide of the mark.

United's form has dipped in Pogba’s absence in recent weeks, but it appears the France international is edging closer to a return to action, with ESPN among those reporting the club’s record signing could be available to play some part in Jose Mourinho’s plans for the game against Newcastle on November 18th.

United boss Mourinho confirmed he is planning to use this weekend’s halt in Premier League fixtures to revive some of his flagging players and ease his long-term injury victims back to full fitness.

That list includes Pogba, Marcos Rojo, Marouane Fellaini and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, with all but the latter of that quartet closing in on a return for the Newcastle game.

“The international break means the majority of the players fly now from London to their countries,” stated the United boss. “They all disappear and then we have a couple who aren’t selected for their national team, like [Chris] Smalling and [Ander] Herrera and they really deserve, after so many matches, to have a week off which I’m going to give them.

“Then we have the group of players which are the ones that we hope will recover as soon as possible. They have to work every day but they are in a good position now. Pogba, Ibra, Rojo, Fellaini. They are in good positions so I think we can go into this part of the season, the Christmas period, and after, in a strong position.”
