Paul Pogba is set to miss Manchester United’s Premier League opener at Bournemouth on Sunday through suspension.
The 23-year-old became the most expensive player in the world when he agreed a lucrative return to United from Juventus in a deal which included an £89m transfer fee.
Pogba was given two yellow cards during Juventus’ Coppa Italia final against AC Milan last season and the subsequent suspension has been transferred to England.
Despite having not played a Premier League match in four years, the Football Association have confirmed that Pogba will be forced to wait until next weekend to make his United return.
“He was booked twice in last season’s Coppa Italia, which results in a one-game ban. This has been transferred,” a tweet from the FA said on Friday afternoon.
