Manchester United attacker Alexis Sanchez is stepping up his recovery from a hamstring injury and looks to be nearing a return to fitness in a series of videos posted on Instagram.

The 29-year-old was allowed to return to Chile after pulling up in pain during a training session at the very end of November, with manager Jose Mourinho suggesting he would not play again this year.

But Sanchez – now sporting a moustache – has got fans excited that he could return sooner than expected.

The Chilean uploaded a series of clips from his intensive workout – as well as motivational messages – which showed him stretching his hamstrings and jogging.

Speaking shortly after the injury, Mourinho explained: The player is experienced, the player knows what the injury is.

And also from the top of my experience, just the painful scream and the way the injury happened, I know its going to be for a long time.

It is not the little muscular injury that in one week or 10 days the player is ready.

It is, for me and also for Alexis, the feelings before the scans is that the grade [of tear] is different than the Lindelof one and the Lindelof one was not an easy one.

So Alexis has what I used to call an aggressive muscular injury. He has an important injury. From the top of my experience he is not playing this year.
