Paul Pogba has a small crack in his toe

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has a small crack in his toe, report L’Equipe on Thursday.

According to the French daily (as translated by Sport Witness), Pogba’s injury has been compared to a previous problem that hampered Neymar for an extended period of time.

L’Equipe also outline an injury timetable for Pogba. Sport Witness report:

Recovery time is put at seven days of immobilisation and then two to three weeks of recovery before he can consider a return, but they don’t make it clear when this timeframe starts from.

Will Pogba be fit for Man United vs Liverpool?

Man United host Liverpool at Old Trafford in the Premier League on October 20th.

Right now, it’s unclear whether Pogba will be fit for the Liverpool match.

Pogba is currently in Dubai working on his fitness.

This week, the French World Cup winner posted the following video on Instagram.

Man United’s verbal deal with Mario Mandzukic

Italian daily Tuttosport are reporting that Manchester United have reached a verbal agreement to sign Mario Mandzukic from Juventus in January.

Of course, a verbal agreement isn’t the same as an actual commitment to sign the Croatian.

Claims that Man United have been tracking Mandzukic have been around for some time.

Mandzukic is 33-years-old, and he’s out of favour at Juventus since Maurizio Sarri took over.

Last season, the Croat scored 9 goals and chipped in with six assists in 25 Serie A matches.
