Manchester United defenders Diogo Dalot and Marcos Rojo have both hinted that they are ready to return from their respective injuries.
Dalot completed a £19million move from Porto to United at the beginning of June, agreeing to a five year contract at Old Trafford, but a serious knee problem has kept the 19-year-old on the sidelines so far this campaign.
The Portugal Under-21 international was seen on crutches shortly after his arrival in England and played no part on the Red Devils’ pre-season tour of the United States.
However, it appears Dalot is on the brink of being available for the first time at United and the right-back has dropped a social media hint over his fitness. Dalot tweeted an emoji which read ‘back soon’ on Wednesday afternoon in the lead-up to the side’s clash with Tottenham.
Meanwhile, Rojo, who sustained a knock during Argentina’s World Cup campaign, also confirmed he’s preparing to join up with his team-mates imminently. ‘Not long now,’ Rojo told his followers on Instagram.
Asked for an update on Dalot’s recovery back in July, Jose Mourinho replied: ‘Dalot is injured, we knew he was injured, a small injury, a small surgery.
‘He’s recovering really well, I think he can start training when we come back to England. ‘He won’t be ready for the start of season but ready I think for September.’
Luke Shaw is set for a fitness test ahead Monday’s match with Spurs after suffering a knock during United’s defeat at Brighton. Alexis Sanchez, who missed the Falmer Stadium debacle, is also a doubt for the clash with Tottenham.
