Paul Pogba’s foot injury has finally been diagnosed as a ‘cracked toe’, according to reports in France.
But Pogba will not be needing surgery to solve the issue as he battles to be fit to face Liverpool on October 20.
The club and player are preferring to go down the ‘natural’ route of recovery, according to L’Equipe.
The Manchester United midfielder took a knock in the Carabao Cup penalty shootout over Rochdale last month where a scan revealed a ‘microfisure’.
He then played in last week’s draw against the Gunners, where the pain in his foot worsened.
Recovery time could take two-to-three weeks, making him a doubt for the clash with Liverpool at Old Trafford next weekend.
Pogba recently arrived in Dubai to complete a recovery programme to accelerate his return.
The Manchester United star is using the state-of-the-art Transform Altitude Performance Center as his base for his rehabilitation work in the United Arab Emirates.
Pogba landed on Sunday and was expected to stay for the majority of the week ahead of returning to United’s Carrington HQ.
