Matheus Fernandes set for Barcelona return in November

1 min read

Barcelona midfielder Matheus Fernandes could be in line for surprise return to Ronald Koeman’s first team plans in the coming weeks.

The Brazilian U20 international joined Barcelona in a €7m deal from Palmeiras in January, with La Blaugrana opting to immediately send him on a six month loan to Real Valladolid.

The 22-year old returned to the Catalan giants for pre-season training this summer, but a persistent hamstring injury has kept him sidelined so far in the 2020/21 season.

He returned to light training last week and the club have now officially confirmed his return to full fitness.

Reports from Marca claim Koeman could be set for a u-turn on his intentions on Fernandes after indicating he would be open to selling him before the transfer window closed earlier this month.

However, with a busy run of games coming up before the November international break, he could be drafted in for his club debut in November.
