The missing veteran made headline news yesterday ahead of tonight's Europa League tie with Athletic Bilbao.
"We just gave Paul a day off," said Ferguson. "We gave him a rest. He was indoors. Paul and Ryan [Giggs] don't train every day. We give them certain days off.
"Cleverley's back training today with the first team. He's been with the physios for a few days but he's now back in our control. [Antonio] Valencia should join us on Monday. Then, apart from Nemanja Vidic and Darren Fletcher, that gives us a full squad. Hopefully it stays that way until the end of the season."
