MANCHESTER UNITED star Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed that Paul Pogba is back in training as he nears his return to the first team.

They are 5 points behind the 4th ranked team, West Ham, when they only won 1 of the last 4 first place matches.
There are still question marks over whether Pogba will leave Old Trafford this year, entering the final six months of his contract.
SunSport just revealed How United offered him a new deal, but the player has not yet decided whether he will extend his stay or not.
And Pogba’s countrymen Olivier Dacourt has stated that now could be the perfect time for a fresh start.
Former Leeds and Everton ace told SunSport via freebets.com: “Manchester United is one of the biggest football clubs in the world.
“But when you play for many years for a club, sometimes you need to change to improve as a player.
“You have a bad habit of doing the same things over and over and you might end up just working it out.
“If Paul decides to leave Manchester United, he needs to join a big club that suits his ambitions and who can give him a real challenge.”
