The Frenchman has been out of action since September having spent recent months struggling with an ankle problem.
And despite posting on Instagram to show he is still receiving treatment on his troublesome right ankle, the Sun report Pogba will be back in just over a week to help United for what is set to be a hectic December period.
Paul Pogba is reportedly to end his spell on the sidelines and return to action ‘in 10 days’
Solskjaer and his players are facing a hectic December where they are due to play nine matches, including Premier League, Europa League and Carabao Cup commitments.
They face former boss Jose Mourinho when his Tottenham side visit Old Trafford, have a Manchester derby against City and take on struggling Everton during the month of December.
With Scott McTominay, who has impressed in Pogba’s absence, himself struggling with injury, Pogba’s return would represent a timely boost for United.

But while the Sun report that Pogba is closing in on a return, the midfielder took to social media on Tuesday to show he is still receiving treatment on his right ankle.
His Instagram story showed his right foot strapped in a brace while he sat on a treatment table.
Admittedly, Tuesday’s story sends mixed messages as they contrast with the Instagram story Pogba put out on Friday, where he played basketball with Miami Heat star Jimmy Butler, seemingly with no physical problems.
Pogba, who has not played since September 30, has spent time in Miami while rehabilitating his ankle.
His absence has also been construed as having another meaning, with a nod to his future in Manchester.

Despite shooting hoops with Butler, it is claimed that he is refusing to get back on the pitch for United as he does not want to risk his chances of earning a move away by returning to action too soon.
Pogba could be on the move to Real Madrid as early as January, according to Spanish outlet Cope.
The Red Devils midfielder – who was a prime target for Zinedine Zidane – pushed for an exit last summer but was unsuccessful in his attempts of forcing through a deal.
