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.
