Ashley Young has returned to training at Manchester United.

The Daily Mail says Young is back in training as he bids to make a surprise comeback in time for next week's Champions League game at Real Madrid.

England winger Young has not played since injuring his knee in the 2-1 victory over Liverpool in mid-January and was originally not expected to return to action until the end of this month.

But the 27-year-old has returned to training at Carrington this week and has an outside chance of making next Wednesday's last-16 first leg at the Bernabeu.
