Manchester United are 10 points off the top four and with Paul Pogba’s ankle problems expected to keep him out for another month, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could struggle to decrease the gap before he looks for reinforcements in January.
Paul Pogba revealed the news to French TV channel RMC Sport, saying: “I will still be in a plaster for ten days. After that, I still have two weeks of rehabilitation.” His absence rules him out the start of December and many United fans think this is quite coincidental considering he could make a move away from the club in the January transfer window.
Man United news aggregator Utd Report posted the quotes on their Twitter account and some voiced their concerns about just how serious this ankle injury really is. The Frenchman was pictured talking to Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane last month, and that raised speculation that he could be hoping for a move.

Doesn’t exactly sound like he’s in any hurry to come back and quite frankly can you actually blame him?

Man United fans, who do you think you need to sign in January to have a chance at finishing in the top four?
