La Liga: Ronaldo and Ramos returns for Madrid

Real Madrid duo Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos are expected to return to full training on Tuesday, after recovering from minor injury problems.

Ramos – who is yet to sign a new contract at the Santiago Bernabeu following interest from Manchester United – missed Sunday’s friendly at Valerenga due to a knock he suffered against Bayern Munich in last week’s Audi Cup.

Ronaldo, meanwhile, picked up a back problem prior to the pre-season tournament in Germany, thus ruling him out of the subsequent trip to Norway.

However, neither player was viewed as a doubt for the start of Real’s domestic campaign against Sporting Gijon on August 23 and both are now set to join up with their team-mates for training on Tuesday having worked on their fitness at Ciudad Real Madrid.

The pair could now feature in the Santiago Bernabeu Trophy against Galatasaray next Tuesday.
