Man United handed triple boost as Red Devils stars return to training ahead of Leicester clash

Manchester United have been given a significant boost after Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, and Eric Bailly returned to training from international duty ahead of their match against Leicester City, according to the Manchester Evening News. 


Pogba was selected for France's UEFA Nations League games and performed admirably in the middle. In the semi-final against Belgium, the midfielder was instrumental in organizing a comeback, and in the final against Spain, he was at the heart of everything positive for Les Bleus as he won the cup.

Lingard, on the other hand, was called up for international service by Gareth Southgate and played a key role in England's 5-0 triumph over Andorra, putting them one step closer to qualifying for the 2022 World Cup. The United winger, though, was absent from Tuesday's match against Hungary, which finished in a 1-1 draw. 


Ivory Coast's previous game was against Malawi, however Bailly did not play in the first game nearly a week ago. Regardless, he contributed to his country's 2-1 victory on the day. 


The trio's return, though, would be a welcome sight for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has yet to receive good news on the injury front.

Raphael Varane, who played alongside Pogba for France in the Nations League final, suffered an injury and is expected to be sidelined for a 'few weeks.' 


Harry Maguire, his centre-back partner, injured his calf against Aston Villa last month and is yet to return to training, though he has stated that he might face the Foxes. 


Regardless, Solskjaer would want to have the majority of his stars available for selection as he attempts to shake off a poor run of form and go on a run of statement victories.
