The forward is out and Barcelona don't want to take short term risks with him

In one of Barcelona’s worst moments in recent years, Ansu Fati is one of the few rays of light. The forward is working on coming back from injury and the club think that he will be back in 2022, to play against Real Mallorca on January 2.

Barcelona published photos of Ansu training alone on Thursday, although there were also images of him greeting Xavi Hernandez, the coach. They have a warm relationship even though they have not been able to work together yet, with Ansu injured when he arrived.

The forward was hoping to make it back to face Bayern but could not, and so now they will take minimal risk with him.

His recovery is going well, his body is responding to the new exercises and he is trying to get to 100 per cent fitness.

Osasuna, Boca (friendly), Elche and Sevilla will be the four games that he misses. The club believe that Ansu’s return is key for the project and so don’t want to risk him in the short term.
