Ander Herrera has handed Manchester United a significant boost ahead of their Premier League clash with Swansea by declaring himself fit again.

The Spanish midfielder has been out of action for the last month after having picked up an injury during the Red Devils’ Champions League draw with Sevilla on 21 February.

Herrera, though, has been working hard on regaining his fitness levels and is now closing in on a comeback for Jose Mourinho’s men as the crucial end to the season looms large.

The Red Devils will return to Premier League action after the international break when they take on Swansea City looking to continue their strong form in the top flight.

Manchester United are currently second in the table as they look to at least finish as runners-up to Manchester City this season.

The Red Devils are also looking to try and finish this season with a trophy when they take on Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup semi-finals next month.

And Herrera has revealed that he is now close to being fully fit again for Mourinho’s side.

Speaking in an interview with United Review, Herrera said: “I feel really good. I’ve been training with the team for five days now, and I feel good, I feel fit and ready to help the team after the international break.

“It was a pity to not be able to help the team after Sevilla away because I was feeling good before that, but football sometimes has these stops. Fortunately, I haven’t had too many [in my career].”

Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last season and won the Europa League and Champions League.
