Barcelona expect Ansu Fati to be out four months after the club confirmed that the 18-year-old underwent surgery on his knee injury on Monday.
Fati had the operation after tearing the internal meniscus in his left knee during Barça’s 5-2 win over Real Betis on Saturday.
He will miss most of the rest of the season, but could return for filming and will hope to get back in shape in time to play for Spain at the Euro Cup next summer.
Barça’s chances in La Liga and in the Champions League have been affected by Fati’s injury, as the forward had become one of Ronald Koeman’s most exciting players.
Fati has already scored five goals and provided two assists in his 10 appearances this season.
“Ansu Fati has been successfully operated on by Dr. Ramon Cugat for the injury to the internal meniscus of his left knee under the supervision of the Club’s medical staff. The player will be out for approximately four months, ”Barcelona said in a statement.
