Barcelona youngster Lamine Yamal has been spotted limping as he joins up for international duty with the Spain national team.
The teenager picked up an injury in Sunday’s draw with Granada. Barca have confirmed he’s out with a hip flexor issue but that he will link up with Spain and be checked over.
Lamine Yamal was then spotted on his way to meeting up with the Spain squad, and there’s no doubt that he’s limping slightly as he makes his way through the airport.

Ahí se decidirá si el jugador se queda o regresa a Barcelona. Será la Federación quien decida.

All of which makes you wonder why Lamine Yamal is heading off to potentially play more football when a rest would surely be a far better option.
The teenager has already made 11 appearances for the Barcelona first team this season as well as playing in two qualifiers for Spain last month.
Xavi has said he wants to be really careful with Lamine in a bid to avoid burnout, but there appears to be no let up so far for the Barca wonderkid.
