Pogba hobbled off the pitch in Tuesday’s night’s 3-0 Champions League win over Basel and was seen leaving Old Trafford on crutches.

A scan carried out at United’s Aon Training Complex today confirmed Pogba faces at least a month on the sidelines.

Mourinho is understood to be willing to bide his time with the France star’s recovery, as he is with the return to health of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
