The midfielder missed last night’s goalless Europa League draw against AZ Alkmaar with an ankle injury.

And France manager Deschamps said: “He again has a problem that's going to keep him out of action for three weeks.”

Pogba originally suffered the injury in late August and missed two France Euro 2020 qualifiers.

Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer said that he wouldn’t risk Pogba on AZ’s artificial pitch.
