The South American duo have been training individually alongside medical staff in recent months and all their hard work – and patience – is close to paying off.

Licha has joined Casemiro in stepping up his recovery work.

Casemiro and Martinez trained on the grass with the full squad on Wednesday, signifying they are edging ever closer to being back in action.

In a press conference last Friday, Erik ten Hag told journalists the Argentina and Brazil internationals are likely to return in January.

It remains to be seen exactly when that will be.

Encouragingly, in that same media briefing, the boss also said Harry Maguire, Tyrell Malacia and Mason Mount are also working towards the same time frame.

United currently have two matches to play this month: the Emirates FA Cup third-round tie at Wigan Athletic on Monday 8 January and a Premier League game against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday 14 January.

A short winter break will follow and then, if the Reds beat Wigan, their next FA Cup match will be played at the end of the month.
