Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba is edging close to full fitness and there have been some promising signs regarding his situation.
There was good news from the Continassa earlier today, as they took on Serie C side Alessandria in a friendly. The Bianconeri won the game 5-0, unsurprisingly enough. But Pogba was amongst the goals for Max Allegri’s men, with Daniele Rugani scoring twice and Nicolo Fagioli and Dusan Vlahovic scoring once each.
The Frenchman isn’t fully fit but he is now close to a full recovery and the appearance in the game told that, with the midfielder looking to somehow make it to the squad for the Serie A opener against Udinese some days later. It is currently unlikely but the signs regarding Pogba returning to full fitness soon are positive.
There were positive signs around Vlahovic as well, as the Serbian seemed to be moving freely and seems to have gone past his groin issues.
