[News] Ousmane Dembele of Barcelona back training ahead of Manchester United clash

winger Ousmane Dembele returned to team training on Thursday, increasing hopes that he will recover from his hamstring injury in time for next week’s Champions League trip to Manchester United.


“Jasper Cillessen (also out injured) and Ousmane Dembele were back training with the group,” the La Liga leaders said on their website.

Dembele was ruled out for around a month after picking up a hamstring injury during Barca’s 5-1 hammering of Lyon that booked them the quarter-final clash with United, with the Frenchman scoring the fifth after coming on as a second-half substitute.

Spanish media report that the World Cup winner will not be back in time for the weekend’s visit of Atletico Madrid — who are second in La Liga but eight points behind Barca — but could be ready for the first leg at Old Trafford on Wednesday.
