Ansu Fati Euros dream might be in jeopardy after reports merged that he might need a third knee surgery.
The Barcelona starlet suffered a meniscus injury in November 2020 in his knee and has already undergone two different operations but the meniscus in his knee is now reported by Cat Radio not to be healing, meaning that a third operation is now the likely outcome.
It is the second time that the 18 year old’s recovery has stalled with the club said to be concerned over the nature of his injury. It follows on from Barcelona news back in February from Diario Sport that the teenager had felt fresh pains in his knee with scans showing a build-up in fluid, which required more medical attention.
Before his injury, the player had netted five goals in 10 appearances for the Blaugrana this season alongside one strike in four caps for the Spanish national team who are expected to include him in their Euro squad.

⚠️ Risc alt de tercera operació. La seva recuperació s'ha tornat a encallar per segona vegada
⚠️ La sutura de menisc no cicatritza bé i en els pròxims dies s'hauria de prendre una decisió
