Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane returns to first-team training with the Spanish outfit.

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has revealed that Raphael Varane has returned to first-team training with the Spanish outfit.

The French centre-back has not played since November after limping out of a league clash against Real Sociedad with a knee injury.

However, the 20-year-old could make his return this weekend against Athletic Bilbao at San Mames.

"He's training and he's fine. He could be in the squad on Sunday," Ancelotti told reporters at a press conference.

Varane appeared 33 times for Los Blancos last season.
