Ghana midfielder Sulley Muntari could return to full action by the end of next month according to newspaper reports in Italy.
This will be a massive boost boost for the Black Stars ahead of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa in January if they qualify.
The 28-year-old underwent surgery in June to repair damaged knee ligaments sustained in a kick-about while on holidays in Ghana.
The ex Inter Milan player will soon be reviewed by doctors where he is expected to get the go ahead to notch up light training.
Muntari was initially feared to be sidelined for the whole year but he has made a tremendous recovery to bring forward his return date.
The Ghana internationalâ€™s career has been resurrected since joining the Rossoneri from cross town rivals Inter in the last winter transfer window.
Muntariâ€™s absence has been sorely missed by Milan as they lie 11th in the Serie-A haven won only twice out of the seven games played.
