Ralf Rangnick, interim manager of Manchester United, believes Edinson Cavani will be available for Sunday's derby against Manchester City.
The forward, whose contract expires at the end of the season, has not played for the club since suffering a groin strain away at Burnley at the start of February.
United have been particularly wasteful of late, drawing blank at home with relegation-threatened Watford last week, and Cavani, despite having endured a difficult campaign, could be called upon for Sunday's trip to the Etihad.
During United's 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur in October, the Uruguayan and Cristiano Ronaldo showed glimpses of a lethal partnership.
Cavani, who has been one of Europe's most clinical strikers for much of the last decade, returned to training on Thursday and could be included in the squad to face bitter rivals City.
Meanwhile, City will be without influential defender Ruben Dias, who suffered a hamstring injury in their FA Cup win over Peterborough.
"He's been back in training since yesterday," Rangnick said.
"Today was his second team training session.
"It appears to be in good condition, so I believe he will be able to join the group on Sunday.
"Aside from that, we have two or three unanswered questions about some players, but we'll have to wait and see what happens tomorrow or Sunday.
"However, Edinson, as things stand now, will be a part of the group."
