Angel di Maria has returned to training with Manchester United and could feature against Stoke City on New Years Day, according to reports.
The Argentinian winger injured himself in training last week and there were fears he could be out for some time after Louis van Gaal confirmed he suffered a pelvic injury.
There was no update from Van Gaal yesterday from his pre-match press conference which came as a surprise but reports now suggest he could be back as early as tomorrow, which indicates his injury was nowhere near as serious as it could have been.
At this stage there is no official confirmation from Man United that Di Maria will be back in action but the rumblings suggest his injury is not serious, which would be good news in itself.
Although United have gone on an impressive run of form, Di Maria has been sorely missed as United haven’t replaced his direct style of play, so it will be good to get him back as soon as possible.
