Paul Pogba’s impending choice on knee surgery will decide his World Cup future

As reported by Foot National, Juventus and France international midfielder Paul Pogba will soon decide on whether he’ll have surgery on an injured knee with the World Cup just three months away.

The 29-year-old midfielder returned to Juventus from Manchester United this summer but swiftly ran into issues with his fitness once more after a patchy few seasons at Old Trafford and was injured in training with Juve last month. He must now decide if his injured knee will be operated on. If he chooses surgery, Pogba will be out of action for four months and will miss the World Cup in Qatar this November – this is Juventus’ preferred option despite the player’s lengthy absence as a result.

Pogba, desperate to play for Les Bleus this winter, could yet choose other treatments which would keep him out for just two months and thus give him time to be ready for France’s defence of their World Cup title. However, this course of action could risk injuring the knee further and affect the rest of his career. The player is travelling to Lyon today to have his injury assessed by well-known specialist Bertrand Sonnery-Cottet before making his choice.
