Paul Pogba will miss the next leg of Juventus’ pre-season tour of the United States after suffering a knee injury.
France international Pogba, 29, returned to the Serie A giants on a free transfer after his contract with Manchester United expired earlier in the summer, starting with Saturday’s 2-0 friendly win over Guadalajara in Nevada.
But after a six-year absence from Turin, he could now be on the sidelines after Juventus announced he will not take part in the trip to Dallas, where Juve will meet La Liga club Barcelona.
“After complaining of pain in his right knee, Paul Pogba underwent radiological tests which revealed a lesion of the lateral meniscus,” the club confirmed on its official website.
“In the next few hours he will undergo an orthopedic consultation with a specialist.
“As a result, in order to continue treatment, he is not participating in the trip to Dallas.”
Juventus will start their Serie A season at home against Sassuolo on August 15.
