Having gone under the knife on July 2, Joao Felix will take the next step in his recovery from an ankle injury by returning to Madrid on Monday.
The Portugal star had surgery performed by Niek van Dijk in Porto after Euro 2020 came to a disappointing end, as he played on 30 minutes before his country were eliminated.
The attacker hopes to rejoin the Atletico Madrid group in training as soon as possible, with the aim of being available for the season opener against Celta Vigo on August 15th.
Having played through the pain barrier for much of last season, Atletico's physio's will work with him closely but will not take any risks.
Carrasco and Gimenez return
Diego Simeone will also be reunited with Yannick Carrasco and Jose Maria Gimenez after the duo's involvements at Euro 2020 with Belgium and Copa America with Uruguay.
The pair took a summer break after their nations' exits from each tournament and will be back in action with the rest of the squad on Monday.
