The wonder-kid might be back.

As Barcelona prepares to face Almería at Camp Nou on Wednesday in the second La Liga match in three days, coach Luis Enrique has talked about the possibility of doing big rotations on the squad to preserve his most minute-heavy players for the remainder of the April marathon. The Death Trio of Luis Suárez, Neymar Jr. and Lionel Messi might be the target of said rotation tomorrow, which opens the door for a young forward to return to the first team.

On Tuesday's training session, 19-year-old Munir El-Haddadi was the surprise feature among the first teamers, which suggests that he has a good chance to return to the squad for the Almería match. Munir has appeared in 14 total matches with the Blaugrana this season, serving as the fourth man in Barça's attack during Luis Suárez's ban in the earlier stages of the campaign. Munir scored and assisted once, and left a generally good impression within the coaching staff.

If he indeed plays on Wednesday, expect Munir to be back for some other April matches, since a new rotation might be necessary later this month. What do you think, Blaugranes? Is bringing back Munir a good idea?
