Winger Dan James is back in Manchester United training.
James has been out of action since starting United’s 0-0 draw at Leeds in late April.
James was pictured training with the rest of the first team squad on Sunday.
James will be looking to make a late push to get into United’s Europa League final side.
While unlikely he will start, it’s possible if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes there is a specific tactical match-up where James’s speed offers United a clear advantage.
First he needs to prove his fitness, and that begins with United’s fixtures with Fulham and then Wolves this coming week.
It’s probable he starts at least one of them, and possible he is selected for both, with United looking to rest more regular starters ahead of the final.
James has five goals for United this season but only one assist.
Good news for James
It was a very good news day for the Wales international, who announced via Instagram he is set to become a dad.
James posted an overjoyed message saying his girlfriend is expecting a baby boy later this year.
With the youngster expecting to become a dad, he will likely be looking to stay put at United this summer, rather than leaving and uprooting, if he gets the choice.
James joined Anthony Martial in returning to first team training for Sunday’s session.
The pair will be looking to make an impact when they feature in the last two matches and try and give Solskjaer an extra option he can call on if required against Villarreal.
