Milan goalkeeper Mike Maignan has been given the go ahead to return after the wrist operation on October 13 and could be back already against Sassuolo.
The French goalkeeper suffered a wrist injury during international duty with France and has missed the last six games in the league.
Maignan kept three clean sheets in the first seven games and helped Milan start their run of 12 games unbeaten in Serie A.
Fiorentina picked up a 4-3 win over the Rossoneri on Saturday and ended the unbeaten run and Stefano Pioli’s men are now preparing for the big game against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.
Milan are bottom of the group with only one point from the first four games in Europe, when Maignan played the first two games against Liverpool and Atletico, conceding five goals in the process.
Corriere della Sera reports the 26-year-old is edging closer to a return and believes he can be back on the pitch already against Sassuolo this weekend.
The surgeon who operated his wrist has reportedly given the go ahead for the former LOSC Lille star to start playing again.
