Revealed: The 9 players Barcelona could welcome back for Granada/Ferran Torres latest

 

Spanish giants FC Barcelona could welcome as many as nine players back to the first-team fold when they travel to face Granada this weekend, it has been confirmed.

Barca march on amid crisis

The subject of personnel woes has of course taken its place front and centre in the headlines when it comes to ongoings at the Camp Nou of late.

This comes as Xavi Hernandez has been forced to face up to a frankly remarkable stretch of bad luck.

Heading into the club’s trip to Mallorca at the weekend, owing to a combination of injury and a major Covid-19 outbreak at the club, Barca were unable to call on Memphis Depay, Pedri, Gavi, Ansu Fati, Sergino Dest, Martin Braithwaite and many, many more.

In turn, it proved all the more impressive when they ultimately departed Son Moix on the right side of a 1-0 scoreline.

The Blaugrana emerged triumphant once more on Wednesday, too, keeping their Copa del Rey hopes alive courtesy of a 2-1 downing of minnows Linares Deportivo.

Pedri & more to return?

And, as alluded to above, if the latest word stemming from the Spanish media is anything to go by, then the endeavours of Xavi’s troops in the face of adversity looks set to see them rewarded this weekend.

Turning attentions back towards La Liga, Barcelona will make the trip to Los Carmenes on Saturday evening, for a showdown with Granada.

And, according to journalist Javi Miguel of Diario AS, the Catalans could be in line to welcome back as many as nine players back to the first-team fold for the clash.

Both Memphis Depay and Ansu Fati are understood to be closing on injury comebacks, whilst hope remains that all of Pedri, Gavi, Abde will return negative tests for Covid-19 before the weekend.

In addition, the trio of Luuk de Jong, Samuel Umtiti and Clement Lenglet look primed to be in contention, after sitting out proceedings at Linares last night.

Last up, should a new home be found for Philippe Coutinho in the meantime, Ferran Torres could be registered and afforded his Barca debut, in the case that he too enjoys a full recovery from Covid-19.
