Takefusa Kubo hopes to return to training with Real Mallorca in the coming weeks.
The Japan international, 20, is on-loan at Mallorca from Real Madrid and suffered a knee injury in September in action at the Santiago Bernabeu.
AS says Real Madrid have insisted he do his recovery at their medical centre.
Indeed, there's a belief amongst management that Kubo is a first team prospect for the future at Real Madrid.
The midfielder could be back action for Mallorca before Christmas.
