Paul Pogba is being ordered to take a ten-day holiday by Manchester United ahead of his rehab for a hamstring injury.
The French star is expected to be out for between four and six weeks after suffering the problem earlier this month.
United boss, Jose Mourinho and his staff want the 24-year-old to take a mini break prior to beginning his recovery.
The ex-Juventus ace is waiting for a second scan on his injury to determine the full extent of his lay-off.
Mourinho has been left furious his situation after another hamstring injury to one of his Red Devils stars.
But Pogba will be given time-off to go on holiday to rest and recover during the upcoming international break.
An Old Trafford source said: “Paul is being given some time off before he steps up his rehab from a hamstring injury.
“He has another scan soon, but the injury has to settle down first and then a full assessment can be made.
“He will be allowed to head off on holiday during the international break and then return for a comeback to action.”
Mourinho is angry with Pogba at present and blames him for ignoring advice over his long-standing hamstring issues.
The £89m man limped out of United’s 3-0 win over Basel in the Champions League a few weeks ago.
