Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has revealed that record summer signing Angel di Maria is set to return to full training this week, Express reports.
The Argentina international only returned from a three-week spell on the sidelines to play Aston Villa on the 20th of December, but was then injured once again during a training session before Christmas.
And now after missing an additional three games, Red Devils manager Van Gaal claims that Di Maria could make it in time when they host Southampton on the 11th of January.
“He’s coming back,” Van Gaal said ahead of the Red Devils’ trip to Stoke. “I think he shall train with us this week.”
Prompted whether the injury was a serious one, he replied: “No, I have said that already.”
United play Yeovil Town in the FA Cup third round on Sunday, but it is unlikely that the former Real Madrid star will recover in time for the clash.
