Van der Sar set to make Man Utd return

Edwin van der Sar is set to return to Manchester United.

Edwin van der Sar is set to return to Manchester United.

The Daily Mail says Van der Sar is set to return to first-team action after his wife's successful progress following a brain haemorrhage.

Annemarie van Kesteren was left seriously ill when she collapsed at the family's home in Holland before Christmas.

Van der Sar had been put on indefinite leave following his wife's collapse and it is understood that she has made a good recovery with no long term effects.

The 39-year-old has been back in Holland for the festive season and also received treatment on a knee injury that has kept him out since November.

But the Holland keeper is expected to make his return to United's Carrington training ground this week.
