Rio Ferdinand was training on Monday morning as normal ahead of Manchester United's Champions League encounter with Braga at Old Trafford. Ferdinand defied Sir Alex Ferguson on Saturday by refusing to wear a T-shirt supporting the anti-racism Kick It Out campaign ahead of United's 4-2 win over Stoke , leading his manager to state publicly that the 33-year-old defender would be "dealt with". But there have been suggestions that the pair resolved their differences at a meeting on Sunday morning, and Ferdinand trained with the rest of his team-mates at Carrington ahead of Tuesday night's game. The chances of Ferdinand playing have increased as Chris Smalling is still to start full training after suffering a broken metatarsal during pre-season. It means Ferguson still only has three centre-backs, Ferdinand, Jonny Evans and rookie Scott Wootton. Shinji Kagawa, Tom Cleverley and Ryan Giggs, who all sat out Saturday's Barclays Premier League win over Stoke, are likely to return as United look to extend their 100 per cent record in the competition. Man Utd provisional squad: De Gea, Lindegaard, Rafael, Ferdinand, Evans, Wootton, Evra, Buttner, Valencia, Nani, Powell, Cleverley, Carrick, Anderson, Scholes, Fletcher, Giggs, Young, Kagawa, Van Persie, Rooney, Hernandez, Welbeck.
