Ousmane Dembele’s return to action promises to be one of the early highlights of 2018 and it seems as though Barcelona know exactly when he will play again.

Barca’s first fixture of the new year is against Celta Vigo in the Copa del Rey on Thursday 4th January, but it looks as though Dembele might sit that one out.

Instead it looks as if Barca have actually pencilled him in to return against Levante on Sunday 7th January at Camp Nou.

The club have released a poster to advertise the game, using a picture of Dembele and in reference to Three Kings Day which falls on January 6th.

The poster readers: ‘Share the magic of the Kings and don't miss Dembele's Camp Nou return.’

Dembele’s return will be a huge boost to Barcelona, who have been without their record signing since September when he picked up a hamstring problem that required surgery.
