Manchester United are one of the most in-form teams in the Premier League at present, with The Red Devils having won nine of their 11 games across all competitions since the World Cup. 

Erik ten Hag’s side have also been boosted by the arrival of Marcel Sabitzer on loan from Bayern Munich this week, with the Austria international having joined on loan on Tuesday.

Sabitzer will provide cover in midfield for United, who will be without Christian Eriksen for a number of weeks after the Dane picked up an injury against Reading last weekend.

Eriksen has impressed during his debut season at Old Trafford, taking up a role that Paul Pogba had made his own in recent seasons, prior to his departure last summer.

The Frenchman returned to former side Juventus, but it is now being reported that the star’s second spell in Turin could be coming to an end.

As per Gazzetta dello Sport via The Mail, the Serie A side are keen to move Pogba on, and could even consider terminating his contract just six months in.

Pogba is yet to make an appearance since returning to Italy

The report claims that the Italian side have become frustrated with the player’s injury situation.

Since returning to Turin, Pogba hasn’t played a single minute of competitive football for Juventus due to a knee injury.

The midfielder, 29, returned to the matchday squad for Juventus’ 2-0 defeat to Monza last time out, but he remained an unused substitute.

It is claimed that the Serie A side could therefore terminate his deal at the end of the current season, or alternatively attempt to sell the player.

Pogba initially refused to have surgery on his knee in an attempt to be fit for the World Cup, before eventually undergoing the procedure, prolonging his spell on the sidelines.

The France international left Juventus to join Manchester United back in 2016 for a fee of £100 million, returning to Old Trafford for a second spell with The Red Devils.

He was criticised for his inconsistency in Manchester and ultimately left the club when his contract expires last summer, returning to Italy.

Despite being popular with the Juventus fanbase during his first spell with the club, he has become a source of frustration since returning to the Italian top flight.
