Benitez is hopeful Aurelio will be fit for the start of season

Rafael Benitez has confirmed to the Telegraph that Fabio Aurelio will be out for a maximum of two months. Speculation in the press had suggested Aurelio could have been sidelined until Christmas. "One, maybe two months, I expect him back by then. Certainly not six."

The Brazilian defender sustained a knee injury over the summer whilst playing with his children, but Rafa is hopeful of having the left-back available within a month.
