Respected Spanish journalist Jose Alvarez Haya believes Manchester United defender Eric Bailly will make a return to full training this week.
The centre-back has been sidelined since suffering a training ground ankle injury while on international duty more than three months ago, and Haya believes Bailly will be available for the Champions League tie with Sevilla on February 21. However, while Bailly may have fully recovered from his surgery, with less than a week with the group, it’s unlikely in my opinion that he will make the matchday squad due to a lack of conditioning. Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Marcos Rojo and Victor Lindelof are all better placed in terms of fitness and involving Bailly at this stage in his rehab would represent a huge risk. Zlatan Ibrahimović, heavily linked with a move to MLS side LA Galaxy, has also returned to the training pitches after suffering a setback in his recovery from a serious knee injury in December.
