The return of Ousmane Dembélé to the pitch is getting closer. In fact, on Tuesday he received medical discharge from the Club's Medical Services and, therefore, Ernesto Valverde can already count on him. The 20-year-old will be able to play again, three and a half months after the rupture of the tendon of the femoral biceps in his left thigh, an injury that occurred against Getafe on September 16.

Despite the need for an operation in Finland, Dembélé quickly started his recovery process and began doing specific work at the Ciutat Esportiva on December 6, ending on January 2.

Before the injury, he played against Espanyol and Juventus in his first games as a Blaugrana, registering his first assist to Suárez for Barça’s fifth goal against their rivals in the derby. #DembeleIsBack is now a reality.
