PAUL POGBA has left Manchester United fans scratching their heads with a cryptic post on Instagram.
The 28-year-old French midfielder has been out of action since November with a thigh injury while on international duty.
Pogba, who cost United £89 million in 2016, is out of contract at Old Trafford at the end of the season.
For now, it is unclear whether the 2018 World Cup winner will be released for free or sign a new contract under new boss Ralph Rangnick.
But with January 1 fast approaching, United and Pogba will have to make a decision – foreign clubs will be able to kickstart pre-contract terms.
Ahead of a potentially career-defining month, Pogba has shared a cryptic message on his Instagram.
The ace from France captioned a picture of him in the back of a limousine wearing a silver Adidas tracksuit.
Pogba wrote: “Don’t look at the problem, look at the solution.”

Supporters have been left curious, with one simply replying: “Interesting…”
But many believed it to be speculation about his future, with some begging him to stay, while others asked him to rejoin or even longer at Juventus. Fans asked to move to Real Madrid.
For now, Rangnik is looking forward to catching a glimpse of Pogba in action for the first time.
But he admitted the midfield star is still a long way from returning to match fitness.
Rangnik confirmed: “He’s still not fully fit and, from what I’ve heard, it will take a few more weeks for him to be fit for training again.
“He has been out for a while, so it will take him a few more weeks to get fit in the match.”
Pogba has returned to training at Carrington as he works towards his return.
United will next face Burnley on Thursday night.
