Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has travelled to Dubai to continue his rehabilitation from a thigh injury in warm weather conditions.

Pogba suffered the injury in training while on international duty with France last week ahead of their World Cup qualifiers against Kazakhstan and Finland.

The French Football Federation said Pogba was the "victim of an injury to the quadriceps of the right thigh".

The 28-year-old has travelled to Dubai to continue his recovery amid fears he could be ruled out until the New Year.

Pogba posted two images to supporters via social media on Wednesday, with the caption "recovery mode on".
