Posted Thursday, December 11, 2014 by Dailystar.co.uk

MANCHESTER UNITED are likely to have both Angel Di Maria and Daley Blind back fit for the busy festive period. Here's all the latest news coming out of Old Trafford.

Angel Di Maria and Daley Blind

Angel Di Maria is in line to make his Manchester United return against Liverpool on Sunday.

The Argentina winger has missed the past two matches with a hamstring problem.

But there is growing optimism that he will make his comeback against United's bitter rivals.

Daley Blind is on course to make his United return in the Boxing Day clash with Newcastle.

The United midfielder has been sidelined for the past month after suffering a medial knee ligament injury while on international duty with the Netherlands.

But Blind's father, Danny, revealed his son is well on track to make an early comeback.

"On Tuesday he had a scan. Everything looked fine on the scan. Daley can really begin rehabilitation now but is still on schedule," he told Metro Nieuws.

Kevin Strootman

United are confident of clinching a £30m swoop for Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman.

But they may have to wait until the summer to complete the deal.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Strootman's move to Old Trafford could be delayed by six months if Roma clinch their place in the Champions League last-16 with a victory over United's local rivals Manchester City tonight.

Guillermo Varela

Real Madrid reserve team boss Zinedine Zidane has hinted the club could make Guillermo Varela's loan move permanent.

United allowed the 21-year-old to join Madrid on a season-long loan at the start of the season.

"I'm delighted with Guillermo Varela," Zidane said.

"He is very serious and professional. He also has a lot of quality and I have no doubts he will make it to the top."
