Felipe Melo to return to first team football by the end of April
Felipe Melo has returned to Istanbul to continue his rehabilitation from his hernia operation. The Brazilian international participated in light training and has upped his intensity in the past week.
Galatasaray have struggled in the past when the Melo has been suspended or injured.
Melo missed four games in the 2013-2014 season due to suspensions and the Lions failed to win any of those game.
The 30-year-old joined Galatasaray on a permanent deal from Juventus worth £3 million last summer after playing the previous two seasons on loan at the Lions.
The hard working midfielder has scored one goal in 21 appearances for Galatasaray in all competitors this season.
Galatasaray are currently first in the Süper Lig with 55 points after 25 games.
