Rojo was involved in Tuesday's session, with Luke Shaw and Ashley Young also taking part as they continue their own recoveries from injury.

The impending returns of Shaw, Young and Rojo will boost Mourinho's options on the left flank, with United having so far failed to land a signing in that area.

Inter's Ivan Perisic and Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale had been linked with the club, but Mourinho is now targeting a player who can also feature as a wing-back.
