Interim coach Ralf Rangnick no longer expects Paul Pogba to play at Manchester United.
“After the investigation, it is very unlikely that he will be able to play before the end of the season,” said Rangnick at the press conference ahead of Arsenal’s game on Saturday (1:30 p.m.).
“The doctor told me that it will take at least four weeks and the last game is at the end of May, so I don’t think it’s very likely,” said Rangnick, assessing the midfielder’s chances of playing at the end of the season.
Pogba took a hit in the early stages of Tuesday’s 4-0 defeat at Liverpool and had to be substituted in the tenth minute. It was expected to be Pogba’s last game in a United shirt as the Frenchman’s contract expires in the summer and signs of a split have been pointing for weeks.
According to Sky Sports Real Madrid and Juventus Turin are said to have contacted the 29-year-old. Pogba joined Manchester United from Juve in the summer of 2016 for €105m.
