United boss Jose Mourinho has given the World Cup competitors within the squad an extra recovery period, which means that Pogba and Lingard will not be needed for three weeks.
Pogba has been enjoying his time off after a summer that has seen him lift football’s grandest prize and simultaneously prove his critics wrong with some dominant performances against the world’s best.
In his first week of downtime since winning the World Cup, Pogba has been in America and partying with his closest friends in LA.

Pogba has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford and whether he will rejoin with his United team-mates and manager Jose Mourinho remains to be seen.
Former club Juventus have been linked with the 25-year-old but there are questions around whether the Italian giants can afford another huge signing following the £100million deal that brought Cristiano Ronaldo to Turin last week.
Pogba and Lingard are due back on August 6 – four days before United begin the 2018-19 Premier League season at home to Leicester City.
