Paul Pogba has told Manchester United fans he will undergo a scan in the coming days to find out precisely how long his thigh injury will sideline him for.
The 28-year-old was filmed pulling up in France training after kicking a ball in a shooting drill and the French Federation subsequently revealed he had injured his right thigh.
There are fears that it could keep Pogba out for the rest of the year but the Frenchman cut an upbeat figure in an Instagram post on Tuesday night.

‘Well as you can see, I got a little injured – hopefully it’s not too bad, I’m probably going to do a scan in the next days to see how bad it is,’ Pogba said, with the clunking of crutches in the background.
‘Yeah, we are here – but we are going to come back strong, you already know – we don’t lose faith, we don’t lose the positive vibe – keep smiling.
‘Everything happens for a reason, we are blessed still and we are going to come back and keep it up – that’s how it is, thank you for the support – all love, we are going to be back soon.’
A spell on the sidelines would be a further blow to under-pressure manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who is enduring intensifying scrutiny after Saturday’s 2-0 loss to rivals Manchester City.

Pogba was already set to miss their next game after the international break – against Watford – due to his three-match ban after being sent off in the 5-0 defeat by Liverpool.
But his absence across a gruelling December calendar would be a major hit to United.
Pogba has already withdrawn from the France squad for their upcoming matches against Kazakhstan and Finland.
