The Canarian midfielder, who will turn 19 next week, has only been able to play four games this season, a couple in the league and a couple in the Champions League. And surely he will not be able to play again until next year.
According to ‘Esport 3’, the young Barça talent will be out for another month after having relapsed from his injury. It seemed that he could arrive in time to return at the beginning of the Xavi era but he will miss the derby against Espanyol. Not only that, but he will not be at the Camp Nou on Tuesday in the momentous Champions League match against Benfica. A crucial clash not only for the European future but also for the club’s coffers. The Barça pearl was injured in the Lisbon game on September 19, when he suffered from the discomfort he suffered two weeks before against Bayern.
On Monday he had trained with the group together with Piqué, Nico, Eric, Sergi Roberto and Neto. It seemed like they could all come out of an overcrowded infirmary and be available this Saturday. But a new setback has forced the only Spaniard to stop again in the ideal eleven of the last European Championship and the great favorite to win the Golden Boy award for the best young player on Monday.
