Marcos Rojo is closing in on a return to action after stepping up his recovery from injury.
Reports on Wednesday confirm that Rojo was back on the training pitches and is said to be targeting a return on March 10 when Liverpool visit Old Trafford. The Argentine has missed the last three matches due to an unspecified injury, a setback which coincided with the absence of Phil Jones and Daley Blind leaving Mourinho with little option but to partner Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof in the heart of the United defence. However, with Eric Bailly returning to the matchday squad last month, the Ivory Coast defender is pushing to be included after spending almost three out following ankle surgery. The news comes as a welcome boost with four scheduled games over the next 12 days [before the international break] which includes a finely poised second-leg Champions League tie against Sevilla. Marouane Fellaini is the only long-term absentee – due back at the end of March – as Zlatan Ibrahimović and Ander Herrera enter the final phase of their rehab. Mar 1 - 5:18 AM
