Former Manchester United and current Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba is set to undergo knee surgery to rectify his meniscus issue.
The midfielder had picked up a meniscus injury during pre-season and while he was at risk of skipping the FIFA World Cup, he decided to opt for conservative therapy that was going to keep him out for a less amount of time.
While the Frenchman did return to individual training yesterday, Sky Italia confirm that the player will go under the knife soon to operate his meniscus. Juve will confirm the situation soon and the midfielder is now expected to be out of action for about six weeks.
The club have also had a say in this decision and had to intervene to make sure that the midfielder undergoes surgery. It isn’t expected that the ex-United midfielder will miss the World Cup for France in Qatar.
The Bianconeri take on Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League in mid-week.
