`Recovering` Ronaldo gearing up for Real Madrid return

Madrid, Aug.25 (ANI): Portugal star striker Cristiano Ronaldo, who has been out of action since injuring his knee in the successful Euro 2016 final, has vowed to return soon after stepping up training at Real Madrid's Valdebebas training base.

Posting a video of sweat-soaked running drills, the 31-year-old confirmed through his Instagram account that the recovery has been going pretty well.

"Looking good. Soon I will be back," he wrote.

Ronaldo, a three-time Ballon d'Or winner, sustained the knee injury during the early stages of the match and eventually made a premature exit from his side's 1-0 extra-time victory over hosts France last month.

The Real Madrid striker is expected to make a return in Saturday's match against Celta Vigo at the Santiago Bernabeu, goal.com reported.

Ronaldo has had a wonderful 2015-16 season as he scored 51 goals in 48 appearances he made for Real Madrid, who finished as runners-up to Barcelona in La Liga and claimed Champions League glory. (ANI)
