  • I'm not a native English speaker, but the most English solution sounds "within a few days." The context makes it clear that you talk about the next days. Especially thewithin part. Apr 21, 2015 at 14:56

Both expressions don't sound English. I would go with:

The project will be completed within a few days.

So without the next. Since you say will be, it implies the action will take place in the future.

Alternatively you could say:

The project will be completed within the next few days.

So with a the.
