Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has returned to the training ground after recovering from coronavirus.
Pogba tested positive for COVID-19 last month but returned to United’s Carrington training complex ahead of their Saturday game against Aston Villa.
The illness prevented Pogba from playing for France in their Nations League victories over Sweden and Croatia but he congratulated Anthony Martial on his display in the latter victory.
Paul Pogba’s wife, Maria Zulay, wrote on Instagram last week: “Home taking some vitamin D, we are feeling much better now.”
It is unclear whether Pogba will travel with the squad to Villa Park, the scene of his only goal last campaign, this weekend as he has only just returned to training.
And the Red devils goalkeeper Dean Henderson expects to make his first-team appearance against Aston Villa ahead of his first full campaign in the senior squad.
Meanwhile, Juan Mata is currently training at home as he nears the end of his period of quarantine before returning to the club’s training.

Mata is one of the first-team squad members yet to report at United’s training ground but he is quarantining at home after returning from Spain. It is believed the Spaniard has had home tests and tested negative for coronavirus.
Sergio Romero, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Phil Jones, Fred and Nemanja Matic have not been seen at Carrington since pre-season training began last week.
Manchester United will start their Premier League season with a game against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on September 19.
