Barcelona have reportedly taken a major injury hit with news that Ousmane Dembele could be out for five weeks.
According to Fernando Polo in the tweet below, Dembele’s recent injury appears serious and the French squad is unlikely to return in time for Manchester United’s game in the Europa League.

Those closest to Dembele say he will be out for about five weeks, which makes it very difficult for him to even outright with United. The season is long and we have to recover well. At least the injury isn’t his hamstring, which he’s injured several times before.

Barça fans will undoubtedly be devastated by this news. Dembele is at his best in Xavi’s squad this season.

The Red Devils are slowly improving under Eric ten Hag and small details like this can make a big difference in the very close relationship between these two big clubs.
