Ansu Fati to return early for Barcelona pre-season

Ansu Fati is planning to report for Barcelona pre-season a week earlier than planned in an attempt to get a head-start on his return to fitness.

The 19-year-old has endured two years of injury hell, with several hamstring and knee injuries keeping him sidelined, but he did make a comeback towards the end of last season as he featured off the bench in Barcelona’s last five games of the season.

He was then called up to the Spain squad this summer but did not play a minute, leaving Fati still looking for regular action to get himself back to full fitness.

According to AS, his international involvement saw him granted permission to return to pre-season training on July 11, seven days after the rest of his team-mates, but the teenager has rejected the offer of an extended holiday.

Instead, Fati wants to report for training at the same time as everyone else to ensure he is not left behind once again.
