The Spanish midfielder has missed United's past two matches with a fractured rib but could be back in action against West Bromwich Albion on Monday night according to van Gaal.
"Herrera is a fit player and he only had a rib fracture, so we can play him with a corset," van Gaal told reporters. "Then he can play. But, of course, I have to select him first."
