Jose Mourinho has revealed that midfielder Marouane Fellaini will return from injury “in a couple of weeks”
However Jose Mourinho is still unsure whether the midfielder will sign a new contract with the club
Fellaini has not player for Manchester United since the end of January, when he aggravated a knee problem as a late substitute against Tottenham Hotspur.
The Belgium international will see his current deal with the 20-time English champions expire this summer, meanwhile, and he continues to be linked with a move away from Old Trafford.
Mourinho has tipped Fellaini to return to the field later this month, although the 30-year-old’s future is still unclear.
“He’s still a young player, his injury had a little surgery, but a minor surgery, and he will be back to play again in a couple of weeks,” Mourinho told reporters.
“If we proceed in the Champions League beyond Sevilla, I think he will be ready for a hypothetical quarter-final. He will be ready for a hypothetical FA Cup semi-final. He will be ready for the last couple of months of our Premier League fight.
“Is he going to stay or leave? I don’t know. I don’t know. I want him to stay, the club wants him to stay. The process, the negotiations, the numbers, the distances between the offer and what he wants – I really don’t know how things are going.”
