Darren Fletcher could be in Manchester United's Champions League squad

Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed that Darren Fletcher is in line for a return to competitive action in the Champions League.United, in common with all teams in European competitions, have to hand a 25-man squad to UEFA on Monday night.And though Fletcher has not played a competitive game for the club since the 2-2 draw with Benfica in the Champions League last November because of illness, there are two spots up for grabs as Ferguson looks to make his final decision. Fighting fit: Darren Fletcher is in contention to make Manchester United's European squad   Fletcher was diagnosed with a rare bowel disorder earlier this year and at one stage his whole career looked to be in jeopardy. But the 28-year-old has played in one pre-season friendly and two reserve matches in the last three weeks and is now training fully every day at United’s Carrington training centre. Sportsmail revealed that Fletcher was under consideration for a spot in the Champions League squad and United manager Ferguson said at his weekly press conference on Friday morning: 'He has put all the weight back on and is back to his normal weight of two or three years ago. 'He is training every day and doing really well. 'We are looking at the Champions League squad at the moment. 'We have a few players we are thinking about and looking at and he is one of them. 'We have 25 players to choose and Darren comes in to that quite easily.' Comeback trail: Darren Fletcher has been out of action since November
