After missing a good portion of a year due to injury, Ansu Fati is expected to be back in Barcelona's roster.
Last November, the 18-year-old sustained a severe knee injury, and as a consequence, he has missed 50 outings.
When Barcelona takes on Cadiz on Thursday night, that number will rise to 51, with Fati still not prepared to play.
But it is unlikely to become 52, with Sport claiming that Fati will be ready on Sunday when Barcelona hosts Levante at Camp Nou.
The youthful striker is back in the training ground, and with the Blaugrana unlikely to gamble him on Thursday, he may make his comeback on Sunday – most likely as a substitute – in front of his home fans.
Fati, the club's new
, is one of Barcelona's most intriguing young prospects, having made his name with the Catalan powerhouse and Spain.
His injury has been a significant challenge in his growth, but he will now want to show that he can regain his former standard as he prepares to return to the turf.
And his scheduling couldn't be finer, with Barcelona in urgent need of an offensive force after going two matches without a victory and only scoring once between a loss to Bayern Munich and aLa Liga
stalemate with Granada.
