According to reports, Swedish superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic is likely to be back to full fitness before the end of February.
The former Barcelona striker injured his knee against Anderlecht last season in the Europa League and was sidelined for six months.
He made his return last November and has played seven times for the red devils so far this season.
However, he is currently sidelined while improving is fitness and has not played since Boxing Day.
It is understood the 36-year-old is not pleased with his condition and he looks forward to getting up once more.
And the Sun have made it known that the former PSG striker is closing in on a return.
According to the report, Zlatan will begin working with the ball this week, and Mourinho will hope the player will return to first-team action before the end of this month and could feature in the clash against Chelsea.
Manchester United will host Antonio Conte and his men at Old Trafford on the 25th of February in the premier league.
The premier league champions lost their two most recent premier league games (3-0 to Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge, and 4-1 to Watford at Vicarage Road) and are currently sitting on the fourth spot of the table.
With Liverpool and Tottenham winning games more comfortably, Chelsea must avoid dropping more points to ensure they finish among the top four this season.
