Paul Pogba is reportedly in outside contention to make his comeback from an ankle injury in Manchester United's derby showdown with Manchester City.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has reportedly been given a 50% chance of returning from injury for next week's derby clash with Manchester City.

The France international has been restricted to just seven Premier League appearances this season due to a niggling ankle issue.

Pogba's most recent outing came in the 4-1 Boxing Day win over Newcastle United, but French outlet L'Equipe claims that he is closing in on a comeback against City on March 8.

United have recently hit form in the 26-year-old's absence, however, and the same report indicates that he is more likely to return against Tottenham Hotspur the following week, giving him a further seven days to recover.

The Red Devils also face Austrian side LASK Linz in the Europa League last 16 in between those two league games.
