Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso could be fit to return from a broken metatarsal against Malaga after the international break.

That is the view of Mariano de Prado, the doctor who operated on the foot injury that the Spanish midfielder picked up in August.

"We looked over the player last Thursday and everything looking normal. He is progressing well and has not had any setbacks so far," De Prado told Marca.

"He is in the last phase of recovery. He is able to further enhance his work and use the usual footwear for practicing. With boots he is ready to make changes in pace and to have contact with the ball. There is a possibility that he can make the Malaga game, but at the moment it is still an estimation.

"It is not to be ruled out, but it is not good to force thinking with an objective. If he arrives at that time in a natural way, comfortable with the workload, then perfect."

Madrid welcome Malaga to the Spanish capital on October 19.
