Barcelona confirmed on Thursday that Ansu Fati has had another knee operation in Portugal.

The club announced earlier in the day that Fati was going to have a “clinical examination” of his troublesome left knee and have now offered a further update.

“After traveling to Porto, Ansu Fati has undergone a check-up arthroscopy in his left knee by Dr. Jose Carlos Noronha, under the supervision of the Club’s Medical Services. The player will continue with his recovery process.”

Fati’s ongoing knee issues mean he’ll also miss the Olympics this summer as well as the rearranged European Championship with Spain.

Yet it’s hoped that the latest intervention can finally fix Fati’s injury and allow him to be ready in time to start pre-season with the rest of the squad.

Let’s send Ansu Fati some good wishes and hope he’s back to his best soon.
