Paul Pogba will miss the next leg of Juventus’ pre-season tour of the U.S. after suffering a knee injury.

The 29-year-old France international rejoined the Serie A giants on a free transfer after his Manchester United contract expired earlier this summer.

He started the 2-0 friendly win over Guadalajara in Nevada on Saturday.

But, after six years away from Turin, he could now face a spell on the sidelines after Juventus announced he would not take part in the trip to Dallas.

In the U.S., Juventus will face LaLiga side FC Barcelona.

“Following complaints of pain in his right knee, Pogba underwent radiological examinations which revealed a lesion of the lateral meniscus,” the club confirmed on their official website.

“In the next few hours, he will undergo a specialist orthopedic consultation.

“Therefore, in order to continue treatment, he is not taking part in the trip to Dallas.”

Juventus start their Serie A season at home to Sassuolo on Aug. 15.
