Reports: Bad news for Manchester United as key midfielder to be sidelined for two months

Manchester United star Paul Pogba could be sidelined for another two months with a troublesome hamstring injury sustained in a Champions League game against Basel last month.

The France international has missed the last five outings for United across all competitions, and he could potentially miss key matches against the likes of Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Manchester City, as per The Sun.

Jose Mourinho earlier termed Pogba as a ‘long-term’ absentee, and according to The Sun, the club fear that he could be out for an extended period with issues over his running style.

United already have a stretching programme in place prior to the Frenchman’s injury, and they have now eyeing a specialist, who could find a solution to the massive load pressure on his leg muscles.

Pogba has been joined in the treatment room by Marouane Fellaini of late after the Belgian suffered a sprain to his left knee during his side’s 4-3 World Cup qualifier win over Bosnia & Herzegovina.

Meanwhile, Michael Carrick is another on the sidelines, and this potentially leaves United with just two senior players in Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic to hand the central midfield duties this month.
