The former Sweden striker, 35, has trained with Sir Alex Ferguson´s squad for the first time ahead of his short-term move from the Swedish club. He will stay in Manchester for the rest of the week before rejoining his family to celebrate Christmas.
Baxter told PA Sport: "We only finished our season 10 days ago so Henrik is still in good shape. If he works reasonably hard over Christmas - which I presume he will do - and gets in some good work with United that will bring him back up to speed."
