Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba could be making a return to Manchester United as doubts are casted towards the possibility of making the same move by Arturo Vidal, as there is no assurance whether he will be able to return to tip-top shape following a knee injury.

The Chilean international, who underwent a surgery last May, was able to recover for the recent World Cup finals, but is still recuperating from the said setback.

"He's injured at the moment and he's trying to get fit," Pogba spoke of his teammate.

The 27-year-old former Bayer Leverkusen man is seemingly ripe to make the biggest move of his career after helping the Bianconeri to three Serie A titles, while posting impressive numbers in both European and domestic duties.

Meanwhile, Pogba, who has also been heavily linked with a return to his former club following Van Gaal's installation as first-team manager, refused to answer questions regarding his future but did not categorically rule out the possibility of heading elsewhere this summer.

"I haven't spoken with any manager or with anyone about my contract so for me I'm just staying focused and training hard," the 21-year-old French international intimated.
