Barcelona has received news about young talent Nico Gonzalez. The 20-year-old midfielder will be on the operating table to treat an ankle injury. The expected time for Nico to recover is about 3 months. The information has been confirmed by coach Gennaro Gattuso.
This season, Nico plays for Valencia on loan from Barcelona. The Spaniard was injured in the match between Valencia and Villarreal.
“Nico has to undergo surgery. He will be on the operating table on Tuesday or Wednesday in Barcelona. With this injury, Nico took almost 3 months to recover,” Gattuso shared.
Nico’s injury dealt a blow to the Bats’ personnel plans. This season, the 20-year-old tomorrow star has 13 appearances for Valencia in La Liga. The loan contract between Barcelona and Valencia will expire at the end of the 2022/2023 season.
Returning to the Nou Camp at this time became a gamble for Nico. It is difficult for the Spaniard to occupy a regular starting position in the first team besides Gavi and Pedri.
According to experts, Nico has the ability to inherit the position left by Sergio Busquets. The old Spanish general left open the possibility of leaving Barcelona this summer.
