Paul Pogba is injured and will miss Juventus’ Serie A opener because of knee soreness.

Juventus’ midfield is still in upheaval as the new season approaches. The squad has revealed that Paul Pogba is injured and will likely miss at least the team’s season opener, and that Aaron Ramsey, a former player for Arsenal, has formally departed the organization after a dismal three years.

In response to concerns of pain in his right knee, Paul Pogba underwent radiological testing, which on Monday indicated a lesion of the lateral meniscus, the Italian club reported. He consequently skipped the team’s preseason trip to Dallas in order to complete his treatment, and he is anticipated to miss the remainder of the month, including the Serie A season opener on August 15 against Sassuolo.

With Barcelona and Real Madrid on the schedule this week, manager Massimiliano Allegri will be without Pogba and Ramsey for the remainder of the preseason tour in the United States. Paul Pogba, Federico Chiesa, and Gleison Bremer are all out for the forthcoming games, but Allegri will try to mix in some young prospects and veteran players to give everyone a chance to participate.

Six years after leaving Juventus to join Manchester United, Pogba returned to the Italian team this summer as a free agent. Pogba played for the team from 2012 to 2016 before returning for an estimated €105 million. This is his second spell with the organization.

Pogba started his youth career at Manchester United but later decided to travel to Italy as a free agent to join Juve for the first time. He played four years, 178 games, 34 goals, and 40 assists while playing for Juve. He also won two Coppa Italia championships while winning four straight Serie A championships. In the summer of 2016, he returned to Manchester United after the English club had paid a then-record transfer fee for his services.

Another thing to notice is that Aaron Ramsey’s contract with Juventus has been amicably ended following conversations over the previous month, and the former Arsenal star is now available as a free agent. The last six months saw Ramsey on loan at Rangers, where he lost the UEFA Europa League final to Eintracht Frankfurt. Ramsey played a total of 70 games with Juventus, scoring six goals. Following a disastrous three-season stint at Juventus, several Premier League clubs are reportedly considering the possibility of signing him as a free agent.
