Paul Pogba has been dispatched to the United Arab Emirates to complete a warm weather recovery programme to heal his injured foot.
Pogba missed Sunday’s Premier League clash against Newcastle – and has sat out four out of Manchester United’s last six games due to the problem.
In an attempt to accelerate his return to fitness, United have given the green light to the France international to train in Dubai, where the highest day time temperature is currently 37 degrees.
Pogba would usually join up with his international team-mates ahead of their Euro 2020 qualifiers against Iceland and Turkey.
But he wasn’t named in France’s squad due to his troublesome foot injury, allowing Pogba to focus on recovering from his problem.
Pogba, it is understood, will spend part of his time in the UAE at the world-renowned Transform Altitude Performance Center in Dubai – which was recently nominated as one of FIFA’s official sports medical excellence centres.
