Paul Pogba has resumed training with Manchester United – but is a doubt for next weekend's Premier League opener.
Pogba was forced to observe a period of quarantine after testing positive for coronavirus, but has now returned to training ahead of the new season.
United host Crystal Palace at Old Trafford a week on Saturday in their opening game of the new season, but £89million club record signing Pogba is unlikely to be involved.
Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “Paul’s had a couple of training sessions, so he’s lost out on a few sessions because of the virus, of course.
“But Paul is quick to get fit. Of course, he worked really hard to get back after lockdown last time and played the majority of the games.
“Hopefully, he’ll be ready for next weekend. I'm not 100 per cent sure though.”
An ankle injury restricted Pogba to just 22 appearances last season, 14 of them coming after the season resumed following the lockdown caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
United are in action today in a pre-season friendly at Premier League rivals Aston Villa, in their final warm-up game before they begin the new campaign.
