The Portuguese central midfielder suffered a serious ankle injury earlier this season.
But he is back from the ankle dislocation he suffered in November to play 60 minutes in a behind closed doors friendly.

He will continue to train, but it may be a couple of weeks before Carlo Ancelotti integrates him into the team.
