Deschamps leaves door open to Man City fullback Mendy

Mendy on course for World Cup says Deschamps

Pogba is expected to be one of France's key players at the World Cup, and Deschamps is confident that the midfielder is on track.

The 24-year-old missed United's FA Cup win at Huddersfield altogether after pulling out with an illness and rumours are circulating of a rift with Jose Mourinho.

Deschamps said: "I have been watching what he is doing - he is not in difficulty".

"He had a little injury and he was sick there".

'Whether you are picked to play in a two-man midfield or three, you have to have defensive discipline, particularly in big games in the Champions League or away to a team like Tottenham at Wembley, ' Lampard told the Evening Standard.

The 23-year-old, who joined Manchester City from Monaco for £52m in the summer, has been sidelined since September with a serious knee injury. For now, he is having a very good season with Manchester United'.

City boss Pep Guardiola hopes he could be fit for the final few weeks of the domestic season.

Is Mendy still in Deschamps' thinking for this summer's World Cup?

He said: "Absolutely, yes he can". "Today, I don't have a definite answer, but neither does he".

"There's no point in taking shortcuts. He must have recovered flexion, extension, have no longer apprehension".

"He's making good progress, if not very good". "Afterwards, he has to get back into the rhythm, in the collective training, resume the competition". He is doing everything, I know what his desire is...

The Manchester United midfielder has come under a bit of fire for his performances recently, as doubts have begun to emerge regarding his suitability to Jose Mourinho's current tactical setup.
