Ansu Fati might undergo surgery again and will decide on Monday.
The youngster has been able to make only 10 appearances this season due to his injury issues.
He returned to training earlier this month after being out for two months with his hamstring tear.
He sustained a tendon injury in the left hamstring in Thursday’s 3-2 defeat against Athletic Bilbao in the Copa del Rey.
According to reports, Fati will be out for 6-8 weeks without surgery and three months if he goes under the knife.
This would be a considerable blow for Xavi’s men who are battling for a top-four spot in the league table and will play Napoli next month in the Europa League.

“We have had a meeting with the family and on Monday we will have a meeting with Ansu and the club doctors to make a decision,” Xavi said in Saturday’s news conference.
“It’s a recurring injury. It’s out of our control. We will now get an exhaustive and specific plan in place to ensure that he never gets injured again.”
