With just ten games of the season remaining United fans are dreaming of a first-ever venture into Europe - but then came the coronavirus outbreak which led to a suspension of all elite level games in England.
A provisional resumption date had initally been given as April 3, with that now pushed back to April 30.
Now, Osborn has revealed what the players themselves have been told regarding what happens next.
"We’re obviously desperate to finish it,” said the United man during an appearance on the 'I Had Trials Once' podcast.
“It’s definitely going to be finished, so they’re saying.
"It’s obviously going to be behind closed doors and it could be two or three games a week to try and smash it out as soon as possible.
“I don’t know what they’ll have to do about next season, whether they’ll have to scrap cup competitions to get the fixtures in.”
That will be welcome news to Blades supporters, who will be hoping it isn't too long before their side can pick up where they left off.
