Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is set to be sidelined with injury until December, according to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. 

The World Cup winner initially picked up an ankle injury against Southampton in August before returning for two games in September.

However, it appears that Pogba's return from injury came too soon leading to further aggravation of the same injury.

The Manchester United manager gave an update on the former Juventus man's recovery after his side's 3-1 win over Norwich at Carrow Road on Sunday.

“I don’t think we’ll see him maybe before December,” Solskjaer told reporters the game. “He’ll be out for a while.

“He needs time to fully, fully recover, so I don’t think he’ll be back.

“Maybe Sheffield United [on November 24] after the international break but probably December before you can see him.

“It’s the ankle rather than foot. I’m not the doctor but there is an injury there that needs healing," Solskjaer added.

Pogba has been a constant figure of frustration for Manchester United fans but has also been central to many of the best United performances under Solskjaer.

Last season marked the French star's best in United jersey, scoring 13 goals.

This season, Pogba has made just six appearances with no goals and two assists. His last appearance was in United's 1-1 draw against Arsenal at Old Trafford on September 30.
