Manchester United striker Robin van Persie is fit for next week's Champions League return-leg against Real Madrid. The Daily Mail says Van Persie will be fit, despite picking up a bizarre hip injury during Manchester United's win over Queens Park Rangers.

Despite the scare, Van Persie's injury is limited to bruising, so he is only expected to be out of training for two to three days.

It remains to be seen whether Ferguson chooses to keep Van Persie in reserve when United entertain Norwich on Saturday, just three days ahead of the second leg against Real at Old Trafford on March 5.
