Barcelona have provided a positive update regarding Ousmane Dembele’s progress as he closes in on a return to action.

The French international has been sidelined since September when he tore a hamstring against Getafe and went under the knife.

Dembele’s surgeon Dr Sakari Orava has this week said that “recovery is faster than expected” and hinted he could be fit for El Clasico on December 23.

Barca, meanwhile, have now posted a video of Dembele in training and the 20-year-old does not look too far away.

See for yourselves...

Fingers crossed we can see him back soon!
