It simply hasn’t been the best last week for Ansu Fati. The Barcelona young star is reportedly undergoing some trouble with his surgically repaired knee.

Fati, who has already undergone two surgeries on his knee, will face a decision on whether or not to get a third surgery coming up. Last week he began to suffer from some swelling and inflammation where his injury originally took place.

This led him to meet with knee specialists to determine potential next steps. Those next steps seem to be that Fati will undergo some “stress-tests” on his knee over the next 15 days. This will help to determine whether or not the issue will require yet another knee surgery.

Let’s just hope the stress test doesn’t cause further structural damage on young Fati.
