Van Persie played 62 minutes for United's U-21 squad on Monday, his first playing time since suffering an ankle injury back in February.

Van Persie was an unused substitute last weekend against Chelsea, but his playing with the U-21 should be enough to get him into the starting XI for Saturday's match against Everton.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Van Persie (ankle) is fit enough to be part of the 18, but not the starting 11 for Saturday's clash with Chelsea.

Van Persie is inching closer to a return to the starting 11, but fantasy owners will have to wait, at least, until United's April 26 clash at Everton. The end of the season will prove important for the Dutch striker's future at Old Trafford with rumors starting to swirl that United are interested in bolstering its front line.

Van Persie (ankle) may be available for Saturday's match against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, manager Louis van Gaal intimated Friday. "This is the first week (van Persie has) trained with the first team, but maybe we have to think about him," van Gaal said.

Van Persie's absence has reignited Wayne Rooney playing in his more natural striker position, and it is unclear if van Gaal will move Rooney back to the midfield role he was playing before RVP went down injured. Given the long layoff, it would be a bit surprising if van Persie started at Stamford Bridge, though United may need to just try an outscore Chelsea given how many injuries they have in defense.

Van Persie (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's match against Manchester City. "H'e back in training sessions so that is a plus. He trained two days with us and, today, he had recovery," manager Louis van Gaal said. "So I think that is not enough to play."

Van Persie has trained with the first team this week and it was widely reported that he would be able to play in the derby, but van Gaal shut that talk down Friday. Van Persie's next opportunity to play will come next Saturday against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Van Persie (ankle) said Wednesday that he is training fully with the first team and expects to play in Sunday's Manchester derby, ESPN FC reports.

Manager Louis van Gaal said last week that he didn't expect van Persie back to face Man City, though the return to training certainly will make him available for selection. United have played exceptionally well without van Persie, so it's certainly possible that he'll be on the bench to start the derby.

Van Persie said he is fit enough to feature in Sunday's match against Manchester City after being out of action for the last seven weeks with an ankle injury, according to Sky Sports.

Van Persie was close to a return the prior week against Aston Villa, but was ultimately ruled out after participating in full training that Wednesday.

Van Persie (ankle) will not play Saturday against Aston Villa, manager Louis van Gaal said Friday.

Van Gaal made the point after saying that van Persie is beginning to get back to full training, but he hasn't rejoined the first team in that respect yet. His next opportunity to return will come April 12 for the Manchester derby.

Manager Louis van Gaal said Friday that van Persie (ankle) is unlikely to return for United until after the international break.

Van Gaal said his star striker is not training yet, and any work he does is with the medical staff. Wayne Rooney will continue to play an attacking role while van Persie is out, with Falcao, Marouane Fellaini and James Wilson also likely to play up front.
