Injured Man United star could recover for Tottenham Hotspur clash

Manchester United star Wayne Rooney could be in contention to face Tottenham Hotspur this Sunday, according to reports from the Telegraph.

Rooney has been sidelined for the past two months due to knee ligament damage, but the 30-year-old has a chance of featuring against Tottenham at White Hart Lane this Sunday.

However, it would require doctors to give him the go ahead after scans later this week, with one eye also set on making sure that Rooney is not pushed to play too early ahead of Euro 2016.

The Red Devils centre forward is virtually guaranteed a place in the England squad, but the captain may not be in the starting line up due to the high number of players vying for a position.

Jamie Vardy and Harry Kane both impressed during friendlies against Germany and the Netherlands, while Danny Welbeck’s return to fitness has also added to Roy Hodgson’s dilemma up front.

Rooney has made 32 appearances in all club competitions, scoring 14 goals.
