Laliga giants FC Barcelona are hopeful that they will have youngster Ansu Fati available when they host PSG in the Champions League on February 16.
There had been fears that Fati might be out for a longer period but a new report from Marcelo Bechler indicates that the 18-year-old could indeed make a full recovery by the time of the game.
Fati had been one of the brightest spark in the Barca team before but underwent an operation in November 2020 with the player having been expected to be out for four months.
A return against PSG would mean that the player will be above schedule about a month ahead of his expected return.
Prior to his injury, the teenager has netted five goals in 10 appearances for the Blaugrana this campaign alongside one strike in four caps for the Spanish national team.
