MANCHESTER UNITED are waiting for a full medical report on Paul Pogba after the player appeared to suffer a thigh injury in the Europa League last night.

Paul Pogba limped off 30 minutes into the 2-1 defeat at Fenerbahce as United’s European struggles continued.

The player was seen hobbling through Manchester Airport at 3.30am when the team arrived back home following the loss.

He appeared to injure his thigh during a tackle with Brazilian midfielder Souza and played on before eventually being replaced by Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

And Sky Sports claim Pogba is a doubt for Sunday’s Premier League clash with Swansea (3pm).

The France international will undergo medical tests at United’s Carrington base today, with manager Jose Mourinho sweating on the midfielder’s fitness.

Pogba has started all but one of United’s games since arriving from Juventus in a world record £89million deal in August.

The 23-year-old four times for the club, including a double in a 4-1 home win over Fenerbahce earlier in the Europa League group stage.

Morgan Schneiderlin is an option to replace Pogba for the visit of Swansea but France midfielder only lasted 45  minutes against Fenerbahce before being replaced by Juan Mata.

Michael Carrick, who was not in the squad for the trip to Turkey, may also get the nod in midfield.

As for Mourinho, he will serve his one-match touchline ban at the Liberty Stadium after being sent to the stands by referee Mark Clattenburg in Manchester United’s 0-0 draw with Burnley last week.
