Barcelona have decided to take a patient approach with Pedri’s return to fitness.
Pedri, 18, has been out of action since September 29’s relapse of a quadriceps injury versus Benfica. There has been a clamour to see the Spain midfielder return to action, but his club’s medical staff are vowing to be cautious.
Scans this week, according to SPORT, have shown the issue is not fully healed. The teenager had been undergoing physical work without the ball.
November 21’s derby with Espanyol has been set as a likely comeback date. Pedri played 74 games for club and country during 2020/21.
