Planning Ansu Fati’s comeback against Levante


Barcelona plan to give young winger Ansu Fati 20 minutes towards the end of Sunday’s meeting with Levante as he is set to fully recover from his knee injury.

The 18-year-old fell in November 2020 with an unpleasant knee problem that required no less than three surgeries to finally be resolved, but he is finally back in training and is approaching his return to competition. .

Fati is expected to be part of Sunday’s squad of the day, and according to Mundo Deportivo the plan is for the teenager to see 20 minutes at the end of the game, in an effort to get him back into action.

If he makes it onto the pitch, it will be Fati’s first appearance in the famous number 10 shirt, which he inherited from Lionel Messi after his emotional departure for Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

There have also been rumors that young Pedri could return for this one, but the 18-year-old, who suffers from a muscle injury, has yet to return to training and is unlikely to be featured here.

Alongside Pedri, officials still see Fati as both the present and the future of Barcelona, ​​and it is hoped that the return of the young winger will provide an immediate boost to a team currently in turmoil.

Without a win in their last three league games, manager Ronald Koeman could hardly be any closer to the exit door if he tried, with Barcelona already working to find a suitable replacement for the Dutchman.

Contact with Belgium boss Roberto Martinez has been made, and although he has made it clear that he would be interested in the move, he will not leave Belgium until after the Nations League finals. next month.
