Daley Blind could return to the Manchester United line-up against Southampton this week after spending almost two weeks training with the first team.
Van Gaal confirmed the Dutch midfielder was coming back for United and it looks like it could be this weekend if he has managed to overcome his knee troubles.
Blind has been missing from the first team squad since November after picking up a bad knee injury whilst on international duty with the Netherlands national team.

Blind returned to training over the Christmas period and his return continues to put an end to the injury crisis that has taken over Old Trafford this season.
His return could be quickened by injury to Luke Shaw with Blind capable of playing at left wing back but there’s every chance the former Southampton man will be fit to face his old club on Sunday.
