Antoine Griezmann has offered a sneak peek of Ousmane Dembele’s current status as the forward continues his recovery from his latest injury setback.
Dembele went under the knife yet again in June after suffering a knee injury while playing for France at Euro 2020.
The forward then reportedly headed back to Paris for the first stage of his rehabilitation but is now definitely back in Barcelona with his teammates.
Dembele is not expected back for some time yet. Barca confirmed after his surgery he would be out for four months which means he’s due back towards the end of October.
The Frenchman’s latest injury was a real setback and came after he’d finally managed to stay fit and become a regular under Ronald Koeman during the 2020-21 season.
However, it did also put an end to speculation over the forward’s future. There had been rumors he could be sold if he did not renew but the latest updates have suggested an extension is “close.”
