On Friday, Eden Hazard was present at Real Madrid’s training ground.
The 30-year-old has missed the last two La Liga games in Madrid due to injury.
And it was thought that the Belgian international will be out with his latest problem until mid-March.
Hazard was pictured on Friday at the training ground of his Spanish side, however.
The former Chelsea attacker took a jog to the grass as his teammates prepared for the clash at home in Valencia on Sunday.
This has fueled suggestions that the attacker would return earlier than anticipated from his current muscular crisis.
