"Following complaining of pain in his right knee, Paul Pogba underwent radiological examinations that revealed a lesion of the lateral meniscus," the club said in a statement.

Pogba started in a friendly against Guadalajara on Saturday, his first match for Juventus since returning on a free transfer earlier this month following six seasons at Manchester United.

On Tuesday, Juventus also announced that midfielder Aaron Ramsey's contract had been mutually terminated. Ramsey was in the final year of a lucrative contract he signed when arriving as a free agent in 2019. The Wales international spent the second half of last season on loan at Scottish side Rangers and was left out of Juventus' preseason tour of the United States.

Juventus kick off their 2022-23 Serie A campaign against Sassuolo on Aug. 15 as they look to win the Italian title for the first time since 2020.
