It has been almost three months since Ansu Fati suffered a meniscus injury in his knee but Barcelona have suffered a setback in his return date.
The forward began to feel pain in the knee last week after stepping up his recovery period and subsequent tests showed a build-up of fluid, meaning he has now had to regress, as per Diario Sport.
He had not yet been at the stage of returning to training on grass and is now unlikely to feature again until April at the earliest in a blow for Barcelona news, although there is an awareness not to put any concrete information on a return date.
Fati is now one of the established attacking players at the club along with Lionel Messi and is aiming to establish himself ahead of teammates Antoine Griezmann, Ousmane Dembele and Francisco Trincao.
The teenager has netted five goals in 10 appearances for the Blaugrana this campaign alongside one strike in four caps for the Spanish national team.
