Bruno Fernandes has sent his support to Manchester United team mate Paul Pogba, following the news that the Frenchman could be out injured until the New Year.
Pogba is awaiting to find out the full extent of his injury, amid reports claiming he will be out for 8-10 weeks [RMC Sport].
Earlier on Wednesday evening, Pogba posted a video on his Instagram feed, which displayed his leg bandaged as he talked about going for a scan.
Pogba said on the video: “As you can see I got a little injured. Hopefully it’s not too bad. I’ll do a scan to see how bad it is.
“We’re gonna come back strong. We don’t lose the positive vibes. Everything happens for a reason. Thanks for the support.”
BBC Sport report Pogba is expected to miss the rest of 2021 due to the thigh injury sustained in France training after pulling up taking a shot.
But his midfield partner for United, Fernandes has shared a story on his Instagram, which is a picture of him and Pogba hugging with a love heart emoji, in a clear gesture of support to his injured friend.
Will Pogba and Bruno Fernandes play together again?
With the World Cup winner potentially being ruled out until late January, a late move away from United in the transfer window, once he is back to full fitness cannot be ruled out.
The World Cup winner and his agent Mino Raiola will be free to negotiate terms with foreign clubs, regarding a potential free transfer in the summer, come the New Year.
After resigning the 28-year-old from Juventus for a then world-record £89m (BBC Sport) in 2016, United may decide to take a cut-price for Pogba in January, to ensure he doesn’t leave the club for a free transfer for a second time.
Pogba’s last two appearances alongside Fernandes brought two underwhelming performances by United’s number six against Liverpool and Atalanta.
