uventus midfielder Paul Pogba could face five months on the sidelines due to knee surgery and might be missing the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Pogba was diagnosed with the lesion of the lateral meniscus in his right knee after suffering a sprain in training in Los Angeles last week.
He was expected to have surgery in the United States, but flew back to Italy on Wednesday.
Pogba is now weighing up his options with Juve management with an eye on the World Cup with France.
La Gazzetta dello Sport says one option would be to remove a piece of the meniscus, which would keep Pogba out of action for 40-60 days.
The other option would be to suture the lesion, but that could require the player being side-lined for four to five months.
That might mean missing the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, which is played in November and December.
For the moment, Pogba is weighing up which road to go down, though has major concerns missing the World Cup.
