Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka is inching closer to returning to action, according to the Daily Mail.
The right-back has been sidelined since September 16 with a hamstring injury sustained in a match against Brighton & Hove Albion.
However, he has resumed training at the club’s Carrington training facility.
Wan-Bissaka’s return couldn’t have come at a better time for the Red Devils, who have been grappling with a series of defensive injury woes throughout the season.
The exact date of his return remains uncertain, but there is optimism that he could be available for selection within the next ten days, pending a successful rehabilitation process.
However, there is a question mark over whether reintroducing the right-back in the upcoming high-stakes clash against Manchester City on Sunday would be too risky.
Given the fixture’s intensity, the coaching staff may opt for a more cautious approach to ensure Wan-Bissaka’s long-term fitness.
Wan-Bissaka’s potential return is welcome news for United manager Erik ten Hag, who has had to navigate a minefield of defensive injury problems this season.
Luke Shaw and Lisandro Martinez remain long-term absentees, while Raphael Varane, Sergio Reguilon, Jonny Evans, Tyrell Malacia and Wan-Bissaka have also been sidelined.
Following their topsy-turvy start to the campaign, the Red Devils have bounced back with three consecutive wins and will hope to keep the momentum going when they face their city rivals this weekend.
