Real Madrid have pencilled in Cristiano Ronaldo for a return to action against Milan in their crucial Champions League clash at the San Siro in November.
Ronaldo limped out of Portugal’s World Cup qualifier against Hungary on October 10 with an ankle injury and is expected to be out for a month. But the 24-year-old is confident he will be on the pitch at the San Siro a week ahead of schedule.
“The ankle already doesn’t hurt me,” he told Marca. “I think I am ready to play.”
The news will be welcomed by the Spanish outfit who have struggled in his absence, while it would mean he would also be available for Portugal’s two-legged World Cup play-off against Bosnia-Herzegovina.
