Barcelona board member Carles Rexach has claimed that Coach Tito Vilanova will return from New York on March 25.
The Blaugrana boss has been in the American city since early January undergoing treatment for a cancer relapse.
But the 66-year-old has revealed that Vilanova will return to Spain at the end of March.
It is as yet unclear whether he will be well enough to take charge of the first team though.
