Ousmane Dembele’s early return to training was reported yesterday by many outlets, and Barcelona have now confirmed the Frenchman is back ahead of schedule and working hard.
The club have stated that he is “continuing to recover from the injury” that he suffered towards the end of the season which ended his campaign prematurely.
Interestingly he has been joined at the training ground by Jean-Clair Todibo. The 19-year-old was in action over the summer at the Under-20 World Cup in Poland after being a late call-up to the France squad.
The rest of the squad, barring those involved at the Copa America, are due back on Sunday for medical checks with pre-season set to start in earnest on Monday.
