Luis Suarez is reportedly keen to make his return from injury this weekend in Barcelona’s La Liga clash with Celta Vigo at the Camp Nou.

According to Sport, the Uruguay international is “pushing to play” despite recent reports suggesting he would be out for three weeks.

The club are unwilling to risk him because they fear he may suffer a relapse that will rule him out of action for an extended period.

Barcelona will train later on Friday ahead of the game and Ernesto Valverde will then announce his squad for Saturday’s match.

With the international break right around the corner it would be foolish of Barca to rush Suarez back, particularly when they hardly lack for attacking options.
