Barcelona defender Adriano has resumed training ahead of his side’s La Liga trip to Malaga after a spell on the sidelines due to injury.
The 28-year-old last featured for Barca in the 4-1 win over Atletico Madrid on December 16, and has since been out of action with an ankle injury.
The Brazilian wing-back is now close to making his comeback with Barcelona confirming he has resumed regular training once more.
Adriano has made 11 La Liga appearances for Barca so far this season, netting five goals in the process.
Barcelona sit atop of the league table with 52 points from 18 games, holding an 11-point lead over second-placed Atletico Madrid.
