Ousmane Dembélé could reach the match against Napoli. The Frenchman has been the big news in the return to training for Barça, which is already preparing for the round of 16 of the Champions League on 8 August.
Barça returned to activity on Tuesday after six days off to face the final stretch of the season. Clément Lenglet and Antoine Griezmann have carried out specific work together with Dembélé, while the great absence has been that of Arthur Melo, who has declared his rebellion and did not appear at the session.
Dembélé was seriously injured in early February. The winger had suffered a femoral biceps injury to his right leg on November 27 against Borussia Dortmund (3-1), which would keep him out for ten weeks. But as he was just preparing for his return, during a workout he had a complete rupture of the tendon that made him say goodbye to the season. The club decided to resign and sign Martin Braithwaite as a substitute, who will not be able to play in the Champions League.
Seven months later, the striker may be the ace up Quique Setión’s sleeve. The Cantabrian coach has not yet been able to see the 23-year-old in action, who this season has only been able to play nine games under Ernesto Valverde, in which he scored a goal in the victory against Sevilla (4-0) .
Ousmane Dembélé could become the great asset to fight for the highest European competition. The trident formed by Leo Messi, Luis Suárez and Antoine Griezmann can be joined by the Frenchman as a shocker for any of the bands, in addition to the young Ansu Fati. An unexpected reinforcement but which comes at a time when Barça are playing everything on one card.
