Darren Fletcher was once a key player for Manchester United, but after 2 years out with stomach colitis, there are doubts over whether he will ever player again for the club.
Fletcher has played for Manchester United all his career, making over 300 appearances for United and scoring over 30 goals. However, at the age of 29, the future does not look bright for the Scottish midfielder.
He has been training with the Manchester United squad recently but has still not made an appearance or even been named on the substitutes bench. It is a similar story in his international career, with the midfielder only making a handful of appearances for his national side over the last couple of years.
With their form they are in, Manchester United look like they really need Darren Fletcher's influence in the middle of the park. He built up a reputation for being a solid tackler and also a creative outlet too, with plenty of goals and assists. As they recently slumped to successive single goal home defeats against Everton and Newcastle, United looked like they really missed Fletcher's unique blend of grit and guile.
