Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has revealed that Romelu Lukaku could be back for Sunday’s Manchester derby with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.
Lukaku has missed United’s last two matches against Bournemouth and Juventus through injury, but Mourinho has confirmed that the Belgium international is in line to feature against the Citizens having returned to training.
The 25-year-old has four Premier League goals to his name this season, but has not registered for United since the middle of September, which has led to a host of criticism.
“Lukaku is training with the team this morning. If the answer is positive – and we have of course one more session tomorrow – he is ready. In this moment, I can only say that he trains with the team,” Mourinho told reporters.
United have come from behind to win their last two games against Bournemouth and Juventus.
