His return to match fitness is expected to take another two weeks after that, putting a potential comeback by the middle of March.

Isco, 27, has struggled to hold down a regular spot in the first team at the Bernabeu this season, being limited to just 14 La Liga appearances and having scored just one goal.

The 26-year-old played every game in August before suffering ankle problems which kept him out for three months, and suffered a fresh setback on his return in December which forced him into an operation at the turn of the year.

He posted an update on his Instagram account, in which he can be heard saying: "Four weeks after surgery, feeling good".

The Frenchman missed the club's warm-weather training camp in Spain to continue his rehabilitation in Dubai and has not featured since the 4-1 win over Newcastle on Boxing Day.

Paul Pogba is targeting a return to action for France's friendlies next month to cement his place for the European Championships.

Sportsmail understands the France global is hopeful of recommencing outdoor training at United's Carrington training complex within a fortnight.

This will surely be a big boost for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer since Pogba has played in only seven Premier League games for Manchester United this season as most of the time he has been out with injuries.

That throws up the intriguing prospect of the midfielder being available for the Manchester derby on March 8.

The Red Devils then play Tottenham the week after in a match that will have implications for their top-four chances.

United travel to fourth-placed Chelsea on Monday as the Premier League returns after a minibreak.
