Pogba only recently sealed a return to Juve on a free transfer after the expiration of his contract at Manchester United.

He had flown out to the United States with the Italian giants as part of their preparations for the new season but, having played in the friendly with Mexican side Chivas on Saturday, was seen limping out of a training session in Los Angeles.

Though he reportedly informed the club that the pain was not too severe, scans on his knee later revealed the extent of the damage.
