Jose Mourinho says Paul Pogba worked ‘amazingly well’ upon returning to training with Man Utd this week and the midfielder may be involved against Leicester on Friday night.

Pogba was back at Carrington on Monday after three weeks off following his role in France’s World Cup win.

He was among a number of United’s World Cup representatives to come back only five days before the start of the Premier League season but with Mourinho contending with a number of key absentees, the boss will ask suss out who fancies lining up in his XI at Old Trafford.

“My perception? He arrived Monday, happy, proud, with a desire to work,” Mourinho said of club-record signing Pogba.

“He worked amazingly well Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and he’s one of the players that I have to speak to see how physically and mentally he feels.

“But it’s the same conversation as with (Ashley) Young, (Marouane) Fellaini, (Jesse) Lingard, it’s the same. To know how they feel physically, mentally to try to give us a help.”
