Barcelona are set to return to training next week, but they could be left waiting for Frenkie de Jong’s return.

After the coronavirus caused complete lockdown in Spain, De Jong was allowed to return to the Netherlands.

Barcelona are expecting players to be back in the country on Monday so that they can begin testing them one by one from Wednesday.

According to AS, the biggest complication for Barcelona will be De Jong, who may not be able to return on time. Flights from Netherlands to Spain are few and far between at the moment, making De Jong’s return complicated.

Barcelona remains optimistic that De Jong can return to the city early next week along with Martin Braithwaite, who is in Madrid.
