Paul Pogba could be back in contention for Manchester United’s clash against Istanbul Basaksehir on Tuesday night.
The midfielder missed the win against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday with a knock he picked up on his most recent international fixture with France but trained with his teammates on Monday ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League showdown.
“We hope he [Pogba] is going to be available, he trained this morning, we will see if there’s any reaction when we report tomorrow.”
United will be without Jesse Lingard as Solskjaer revealed the 27-year-old is self-isolating having being in contact with someone who has Covid-19.
The England international will have to sit out the game along with Phil Jones and Luke Shaw who are sidelined with injuries. Shaw picked up a hamstring injury in the 3-1 win against Everton before the international break and is expected to miss a few more games.
“I hope nearer to four weeks,” Solskjaer replied when asked about a timeframe for Shaw’s return.
“But with a recurrence of hamstring injuries you can’t risk anything and he’s not trained with us, we’ll see how he reacts to the programme he’s on, hopefully four but maybe nearer five or six.”
