As per Marca, Dembele is now back training with his teammates and has also tested positive for Covid-19, along with all other members of Barcelona’s squad.
Dembele has not featured for Barcelona’s first-team since November – and not at all under Quique Setien – due to long-term injuries while his fitness has blighted his time at the Camp Nou since his 2017 switch from Dortmund.
The France international – who has been plagued by injuries since moving to the Camp Nou in the summer of 2017 – pulled up in the 25th minute of the clash against his former club Borussia Dortmund in late November and has not featured since.
A muscular injury in his right thigh ruled the forward out for two months but upon his return to training in early February he suffered a fresh setback.
That had appeared to rule him out of the 2019-20 campaign but the three-month break in football due to the virus pandemic has allowed him to return for August’s Champions League action.
