Dembele injury : Barcelona star ruled out for 4 months

Ousmane Dembele facing long injury lay-off

Barcelona have been dealt a particularly cruel blow regarding their major summer signing Ousmane Dembele.

 

The Catalans shelled out an enormous amount of money on Dembele and looked to be easing the French winger into their side.

Having sold Neymar to PSG for 222 million, Dembele was signed from Borussia Dortmund in the summer in a deal worth up to £135.5 million.

On Saturday, Dembele made his full La Liga debut for Barcelona at Getafe but the experience didn’t last too long.

The French international lasted just 29 minutes when he pulled up with a hamstring injury.

The player will undergo surgical treatment by Dr. Sakari Orava this coming week in Finland. The expected downtime will be between 3 and a half months and and 4 months.
