The 27-year-old had been named in France’s squad for their upcoming Nations League matches next month but has been replaced in the squad by Eduardo Camavinga following his positive test result.
The news was confirmed by France head coach Didier Deschamps after he announced the squad for the games..
Deschamps said: “I had to make a last-minute change to this list, because Paul Pogba was planned to be in this list but unfortunately for him, he took a test (for COVID-19) yesterday which turned out to be positive today, so at the last minute he was replaced by Eduardo Camavinga.”
France are scheduled to play Sweden in Solna on September 5 and Croatia in Paris on September 8.
