Gini Wijnaldum continues to make steady progress in his recovery, although conflicting reports in Italy claim different dates of return to the pitch for the Dutch midfielder.

According to La Repubblica, Jose Mourinho hopes to see Wijnaldum join the team in their upcoming trip to Portugal in mid-December. Wijnaldum would not be able to partake in group activities yet, but the Special One’s hope is to reintegrate him with the rest of the team as soon as possible.

On the other hand, Il Messaggero claims the ex-Liverpool will not be able to travel with the team in two weeks’ time and will only start group training drills in January in order to shorten the recovery timeline.
