The £16.5m singing could be fit for next weekend’s fixture.
Manchester United’s dreadful injury problems could soon be behind them, as defender Phil Jones has returned to training today, according to the Mirror.
Man United boss Louis Van Gaal is without Chris Smalling, Luke Shaw Daley Blind and Rafael in defence alone, so Jones’ return is a much-needed boost.

The defender has missed seven weeks with shin splints, and hasn’t featured for the red Devils since their game against West Brom in October.
The England international has only appeared four times for his club this season, and injuries continue to disrupt his development as a player.
While this weekend’s derby game against Liverpool will come too soon for the former Blackburn man, United are hopeful he will be fit for next week’s fixture against Aston Villa.
