Barcelona injury latest: Kounde, Dembele, De Jong & Memphis

Xavi and co. have been left to sweat over the fitness of a number of key performers

Updates on the wellbeing of a quartet of Barcelona stars have been provided online.

For those not aware, the Blaugrana, despite not taking to the pitch, endured a night to forget on Thursday.

This came as, remarkably, no fewer than four members of Xavi Hernandez’s squad were forced into premature departures from the action whilst on international duty.

The players in question? Jules Kounde, Ousmane Dembele, and Netherlands pair Memphis Depay and Frenkie de Jong.

And now, as alluded to above, an insight into the extent of the problems picked up by each Barca star has been provided.

The info comes courtesy of Javi Miguel of Diario AS.

Miguel points towards the situations of Frenkie de Jong and Ousmane Dembele being altogether unconcerning, with both expected to remain with their respective national squads over the coming week.

The news regarding Jules Kounde and Memphis Depay, on the other hand, is less positive.

Both players are in line for immediate returns to Catalunya, where they will undergo a round of medical tests over the coming days, to ascertain the extent of their respective muscular problems.
