Jose Mourinho admits he has “no idea” when Paul Pogba will return from injury.

That is yet another setback for Pogba’s recovery after Mourinho insisted Manchester United’s £89million midfielder has NOT returned to full training.

United boss Mourinho is clearly infuriated with Pogba – who has been out since September 12 when he pulled a hamstring against Basel – and stressed the team have done well without him.

France star Pogba has been doing rehabilitation in Miami and has since returned to the club’s Carrington training ground but Mourinho revealed that he is not working with the first team.

Mourinho said: “I have no idea. Honestly. I am not in control of his recovery process. He is not training with me. He is on individual work and when a player is on individual work I cannot predict.

“I would expect Marcos Rojo to return after the international break because he is training with me. But with Paul I have no idea.”

Then when asked how United had done in Pogba’s absence, Mourinho added: “We won every match except one. Two? Well, two, so not bad.”

Pogba’s relationship with Mourinho has appeared strained at times because of his fitness issues and suggestions that the player ignored medical advice on a long-standing hamstring problem. Pogba has also done a high level of commercial deals, including launching his own emoji.

Meanwhile, Mourinho has claimed United fans are within their rights to boo him after his decision to substitute Marcus Rashford for Anthony Martial was jeered.

Mourinho added: “They pay the ticket they can do what they want. They can boo a player that doesn’t deserve to be booed, they can boo a player who is working like an animal, even though the game is not going in his direction.

“They can boo – they pay their tickets, they can boo the manager.”

On Sunday night, as the clock gets ready to strike 9 p.m. local time, the 22 elected starters of Olympique de Marseille and Paris Saint-Germain will take the field at Stade Velodrome.

It will be the 92nd time France’s two biggest clubs have played one another, and in many senses, it will be a familiar scene of bubbling malevolence and bitter rivalry—an atmosphere of such a strong flavour, in fact, that it will take place in front of an entirely partisan audience after the local prefecture’s police refused to admit away supporters, per RTL (in French).

Yet the title under which the match is played—Le Classique, or Le Classico—doesn’t quite detail what has happened to the rivalry in recent years. The last time Marseille finished victorious was in the November 2011 meeting at the Velodrome.

Having started the season sluggishly with just four wins from their opening seven La Liga games, there are concerns Real’s team need improvements.

And according to Spanish publication Don Balon, Zinedine Zidane met with president Florentino Perez and general director Jose Angel Sanchez to discuss plans.

It is far from guaranteed that Real’s frightening attacking trio of Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo will all be at the club next season.

And for that reason signing two strikers is Los Blancos’ priority.

Top of Real’s wishlist are Tottenham star Harry Kane and Juventus forward Paulo Dybala with the former recently admitting he would not rule out a move to Spain.

Dybala only signed a new long-term deal with Juve earlier this year but continues to be linked with a move to La Liga with Real and Barcelona both keeping tabs on him.

Madrid’s other priority lies with finding a new goalkeeper with Keylor Navas’ future uncertain at the Bernabeu.

Don Balon claim Manchester United’s David de Gea is Perez’s first choice but he is not ruling out a move for Chelsea shot-stopper Thibaut Courtois should he fail to sign the Spaniard.

Both Premier League goalkeepers have been on Real’s radar for some time and De Gea came closest to leaving Old Trafford in the summer of 2015 but a deal fell through on deadline day.

The final area Real want to reinforce is in defence with a new right-back and a centre-back targeted.

Perez and Zidane have outlined Real Sociedad’s Alvaro Odriozola and Athletic Bilbao’s Aymeric Laporte.

Odriozola was recently asked about being linked with a move to Real Madrid but said: “I just signed a new contract through 2022 and that’s all I’m thinking about right now.”

Laporte is under contract with Bilbao until 2020.
