Cristiano Ronaldo is recovering well from his knee injury and may return to action in Saturday's friendly against his former club Manchester United in Michigan.

The Portugal captain and World Player of the Year has been hampered by a left knee problem in recent months and was clearly below his best at the World Cup in Brazil, where the Portuguese failed to progress beyond the group stage.

"He (Ronaldo) did two sessions today and he is working well on his own," said Ancelotti yesterday after Real were beaten 1-0 by AS Roma in a friendly at the International Champions Cup in Dallas.

"Let's see if in the next few days he can train with the team and can play against Manchester," added the Italian. "We have to be careful, right now we have to be calm."
