Inter defender Walter Samuel is reportedly close to a return to first-team action after six months on the sidelines with serious knee-ligament damage.
The 35-year-old has been recuperating since undergoing surgery on his right knee damaged during the November 6 clash with Brescia, and has recently returned to first-team training in a bid to see game time before the season is through.
Such is his progress, it is thought he could be included in the squad for Week 35's trip to Cesena, which would be his first involvement under Leonardo.
