The 22-year-old was unavailable for the majority of January due to his commitments with Ivory Coast in the Africa Cup of Nations, but has returned to Old Trafford after they were knocked out of the competition by Morocco on Wednesday evening.
He was one of Man United’s best performers when he first arrived at the club but hasn’t been in action for United since the 4-0 defeat to Chelsea at the end of November due to a knee injury.
Speaking in his press conference ahead of the clash, Mourinho confirmed Bailly’s situation.
“He’s not ready for tomorrow obviously but he’s coming back. No problems,” he said.
Bailly’s return to fitness was a massive subject for United and there were doubts over whether he’d even be able to attend the Africa Cup of Nations, however he’s fighting fit and should be back in action against Wigan.
