However, Pogba’s family have posted videos of the United star dancing at his brother’s wedding in Paris, France on Friday.
Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer plans to make new changes to his starting line-up for Colchester’s visit to Old Trafford.
This likely means 18-year-old Striker Greenwood would start the match after scoring his seventh goal of the season against Everton.
