Ansu Fati fighting to be fit for Barcelona's league opener against Villarreal

Spanish youngster Ansu Fati is fighting to be fit for FC Barcelona’s league opener against Villarreal next week.

Fati picked a hip injury in the club’s Friday training after a clash with Ronald Araujo and is expected to be sidelined for 10 days according to reports from AS.

The injury means that the player will miss Barca’s friendly against Girona after sitting out of their game against Nastic but should be back to full fitness by the time Villarreal arrive at the Camp Nou as his injury is thought not to be a serious one.

Fati is seen as a player who will play a major role in the team this season if they can’t get Memphis Depay from Lyon with reports suggesting that the player will play at the top of a 4-2-3-1 formation, supported by Lionel Messi, Antoine Griezmann and Ousmane Dembele.
