It looks like he's back in the country based on his recent Insta photo


caption "almost there"

He posted he was leaving Dubai (or wherever he was) in one of his stories a couple of days ago.
That’s still definitely Dubai, it’s dark and he’s got shorts and t-shirt on. If he was doing that over here at night time he’d need other medical help :lol:

Also looks like he’s doing a bit more than warm weather training, I’d call that promotional work.

Nice to see on the eve of us having to play Liverpool.

DdG travelled with the squad, so his injury is probaby some minor problem. He will be in starting line up I would asume.

He's lived in northern England a good chunk of his life, he's used to a bit of wind chill :lol:

Couldn't tell if he was actually outdoors, or if it's some sort of after effects on the photo. Dunno what the strobe things are behind him.


Unless he's moved on from Dubai to somewhere else equally warm, he definitely posted he was leaving a couple of a days ago.

It’s bastard freezing outside in Manchester just got back from the off licence :lol: could go with the shorts but sleeveless top that’s insanity.

Looks like a promo spot in Dubai to me, could have been a few days ago though I guess? Am sure we have some Pogba followers on instagram that could confirm. Certainly wouldn’t be a good idea doing promotional work in Manchester just before a united v Liverpool game while on the sick list.

Yeah, the picture could have been taken a few days ago, it was posted today though.

Not that he's playing tomorrow anyway, so I guess it doesn't matter where he is.

Guys, this room is part of Pogba's house, it's like a sports and training area, it's not in Dubai and it definitely isn't outdoors. :lol:

I feel disillusioned and frustrated with Pogba as much as most Manchester United fans but this is a pointless discussion. I think he is actually trying to show the fans that he cares about the club and is doing his best to be fit as soon as possible. My doubts are that it's more about Pogba's ego and reputation being hurt by our current unseen awful form, and not to actually show commitment to the team.

Looks a bit funky but fair enough.

Pogba out until December apparently. In time to put himself in the shop window.

Makes the decision to bring him back against Rotherham look really stupid.

Who was the last player we stood firm on not selling and later regretted it? Has there been one under the current owners? I think they might look back on this and think twice next time a start player wants out.

We’re not selling him in January.

We’ll see with Pogba but I’m pretty sure he’s committed to United. Some top reds seem to be willing him to leave though. Nice way to treat our best player imo. We have a go at Madrid for booing their best players and then we do exactly the same with ours.

Difference is at least their fans don’t put up with their mediocre ones. Our fans embrace them fully since it’s the United way. News flash it’s not. We’re Manchester United we win trophies and players like Paul Pogba u pay to watch because he’s so damn good at football.

The guy is actually a United fan too unlike some players we sign and our fans take them to their heart because they play in a more English fashion.

I really don’t get it. Seems a lot of people on the forum have decided to give themselves a reason to have a go at him since the start of the season, and the fact he seemingly has a fracture is his toe is the latest that will do for them. Him being injured has brought on some question about application all over again, and people have concluded that he’s injured because he wants to go and is running with that.

Pogba has never been unprofessional, and even this so-called summer of discontent is massively overblown to suit people’s agenda. Despite a comment about being open to a new challenge, he hardly tried to force his way out or anything, kept his head down, did a full pre-season and didn’t bang on about leaving. Some people on here are just as bad as the Sky Sports panel regarding him, and it takes little for them to froth at the mouth regarding Paul Pogba for whatever reason.

Agree completely. Like Rooney he’s been nothing but a class act for us on the field. I can’t fault his application at all. Fans are dreaming about Sancho etc when Pogba is a better player and actually a true red. Makes zero sense.

The man wants to be paid in the top 5 players in the world because he’s in the top 5 most marketable players in the world. It kinda makes sense and it’s not like he shouldn’t be our highest earner, he’s pure quality. If you are gonna convince someone to stay it’s him first surely.

For some reason many of our own don’t want to convince him to stay. It’s like a fecked up relationship where one wants to leave and they jump on a small thing the other does to try and push through a breakup. David De Gea has shown far greater intent to leave over the years from what I can see, but we’ve decided that we like him, so it was never ‘feck him’.
