Has 'Agent Pogba' Done It Again For Manchester United?

Jose Mourinho expects his squad to be strengthened following the global break after Paul Pogba, Marcos Rojo and Michael Carrick returned to training this week. When Pogba hasn't played, United have given up 17.9% more possession of the ball to their opponents.

Their returns are timely after Mourinho came under fire for his tactics at Stamford Bridge last Sunday as United slipped to defeat at Chelsea and saw the gap between themselves and rivals Manchester City at the top of the Premier League widen to eight points.

Paul Pogba has a different handshake for everyone!

The 24-year-old was joined by Rojo and Carrick in the training session.

Furthermore, the Reds were creating 14.8 chances per game in the presence of their £89m-rated midfielder, but without him, they have only been able to create 7 per match - numbers that also explain Romelu Lukaku's goal-scoring drought.

Scroll through the gallery above to see Paul Pogba's new haircut ahead of his Manchester United comeback. Even during the start of the season, he helped the team a lot.

With reports doing the rounds saying that he may be ready to make his comeback in United's meeting with Newcastle next week, Pogba has spent the worldwide break catching up with his France teammates after their Friday night victory over Wales.

Speaking to MUTV, Pogba said: "Anthony is a big, big, big talent".

Mertens has been in sensational form for Napoli and his fantastic goals to game ratio in Serie A (35 games, 28 goals last season, 12 games, 10 goals so far this season) is something that would very much whet the appetite for Mourinho as he sees goals fly in for fun at the Etihad whilst his own strike force stutter in front of goal. He's a talented player - one of the best players I have ever seen or trained with.
