The Barca attacker, who has been out since the back end of 2020, has been recovering from an injury in the meniscus in his left knee which has given the player and the club staff a headache.
Although there was the possibility of the young star continuing with his recovery in Barcelona during pre-season, Ansu Fati will not be near his teammates this summer.
According to 'Catalunya Radio', the footballer will continue with his rehabilitation in Madrid under the watchful eye of doctor Norinha and the physiotherapist Joaquin Juan.
In principle, according to information from the cited media outlet, Ansu Fati will remain in the Spanish capital for two or three weeks, so he will not be with Barca until the team return from their pre-season tour of Germany.
The club seemed to have agreed to the player's wish. He feels comfortable in Madrid and he hopes to continue recovering there so that he is in the best possible form for the 2021-22 season.
Last term, before his injury against Betis, Ansu Fati scored five goals and gave two assists in just 10 competitive appearances.
