Serious Ousmane Dembele injury hands Man United major boost ahead of Barcelona clash – Man United News And Transfer News

Spanish giants Barcelona have been hit hard ahead of their Europa League clash with Manchester United, and Ousmane Dembele is now a big suspect in the incident.

United travel to Spain to face Barcelona on 16 February, before the second leg at Old Trafford seven days later.

Barcelona are currently top of La Liga and are doing well in their domestic league.

However, Dembele’s involvement with the Red Devil is not guaranteed. The winger was sidelined with injury in Blaugrana’s 1-0 victory over Girona.

Barça have three points, but the supporters will be waiting with bated breath for the full story of Dembele’s injury.

Helena Condis reports ‘Ousmane Dembele could be out for three weeks’.

“He now has doubts about Barcelona’s Europa League first leg against #mufc on February 16.”

Videos posted on social media show a French man limping and clearly in pain.

Barcelona are said to be less than confident in getting a deadly attacker in a formidable partnership with Robert Lewandowski anytime soon.

The 25-year-old is thought likely to be out longer than the estimated three weeks.

His injury is serious and Barca should consider themselves ‘very lucky’ if he is able to return in that time.

Barcelona boss Xavi confirmed something similar after the Girona match.

“We’ll know more about Dembele tomorrow, but I think he’s injured,” Xavi said.

Hopefully the injury isn’t too serious and Dembele will be able to play football.
