The in-form attacking midfielder trudged off the field after 20 minutes of United’s Champions League victory over Basel last Tuesday and subsequent tests and scans revealed hamstring damage that saw his prognosis go from four weeks, to six week and then to twelve weeks.
Such an absence would likely see the 24-year-old not feature again this calendar year and be missing for up to 18 games for the Old Trafford outfit, including crunch ties with Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester City and Liverpool.
Now, however, footage has emerged of the former world’s most expensive player dancing in his underwear and showing no real symptoms suggestive of a dodgy hamstring.
Take a look.

While the short clip doesn’t exactly show the flamboyant Frenchman moving like Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing, United fans could well be encouraged by the very fact that he is not on crutches.
Despite the footage, Old Trafford bosses have not issued any further updates on the star or his return. All fans have to go on is that he is currently injured and may not return for some time.
If nothing else, this latest footage of a dancing Paul Pogba has simply given hope to many that he may be back sooner rather than later.
