"He has done some work over the last couple of days and we will see how he is for Saturday's game," said Ferguson, who also confirmed Ryan Giggs and Rio Ferdinand have an outside chance of being involved at Eastlands.
Owen Hargreaves is set to be included in United's squad, meaning the midfielder could make his first senior appearance in almost 20 months.
Hargreaves' fitness is one of the matters Ferguson will give thought to this summer as he looks to reshape a squad that has already been bolstered by the signings of Javier Hernandez and Chris Smalling, with more set to follow.
"We have a reasonable structure here. There is nothing wrong with it," said Ferguson. "We may look at one or two things, but nothing serious.
"It is important not to confuse us with others who have much more buying power. We do not need to worry about them.
"It was the same with Chelsea. We didn't bother ourselves when they were buying. We just try to concentrate on what we are doing."
