Manchester United don’t expect Paul Pogba to play again for the club until 2022.

According to Daily Mail, the Red Devils expect Pogba to be out of action for the rest of the year after sustaining a thigh injury on international duty with France.

Pogba still has one game of a three-match domestic suspension to serve following his red card against Liverpool last month, so he would have been unavailable for the trip to Watford after the international break anyway.

Pogba could miss a further 11 games if the injury keeps him out for the busy Christmas fixture programme and into the new year.

Pogba damaged a right thigh muscle attempting a shot in training with the France national team.
