The 23-year-old Wales international was expected to miss the rest of the campaign after suffering the injury during the early stages of the 2-2 draw with Sunderland on 1 September.

But his rehabilitation is going well and he is hoping to return to light training soon.

Taylor said: "It is now 12 weeks since the injury and I have an X-ray coming up to see how everything has healed and from there I hope to start jogging if it is all clear, which would be great.

"I have already been jogging on an anti-gravity treadmill which means you are only putting around 60 per cent of your body weight on the leg, moving to putting 100 per cent on it would be a big step.

"To be able to return to play in any game before the end of the season would be a bonus.

"Fingers crossed, I have not had any setbacks in my recovery as yet, and the surgeons have been really pleased with how it is going, so I hope there is more good news to come."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
