Barcelona‘s record marking Ousmane Dembele could be in line for an early return in El Clasico in December as the Frenchman’s recuperation is moving quicker than anticipated.
The France international dream move to the Camp Nou was discolored on quite recently his second La Liga appearance when he suffered a hamstring injury in September, but he could make his hotly anticipated return amid the clash against Real Madrid toward the finish of the year.
The 20-year-old was initially precluded for no less than three months and anticipated that would make his return in the new year, but as per Spanish production ‘Marca’, after his successful operation, Dembele’s recovery is going better.
The third ‘El Clasico’ of the season, after the two legs of the Spanish Super Cup in August, will happen at the Bernabeu on December 23rd and Barcelona would be looking to be in a position to further expand their lead over La Liga champions Real Madrid.
According to Marca, that in spite of the fact that it is too early to put an exact date on the youngster return, it isn’t absolutely impossible that he could make his return sooner than anticipated, with the derby being the last game before the winter soften up Spain.
The exact opposite thing Barcelona will want to do is rush Dembele once again enthusiastically, and they are in the fortunate position not to be dependent on his contribution, as they right now sit clear at the top of La Liga.
