Real star Ronaldo targets Milan return

Real Madrid have pencilled in Cristiano Ronaldo for a return to action against AC 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 Bernabeu medics predicted to £80 million forward would be sidelined for a month. But the 24-year-old is confident he will be on the pitch at the San Siro a week ahead a schedule.

"The ankle already doesn't hurt me," he told Marca. "I think I am ready to play."

The news will be greatly welcomed by the Spanish giants who have struggled in his absence, while he would also be available for Portugal's two-legged World Cup play-off against Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Before his injury Ronaldo had scored nine goals in his seven competitive games since moving from Manchester United. Madrid have lost two of the three games he has been sidelined for, including a 3-2 defeat at home to Milan on Wednesday.
