Barcelonaâ€™s attacking options have been further limited by the announcement Martin Braithwaite will undergo knee surgery.
Braithwaite, 30, missed this monthâ€™s international break with Denmark after he was removed in the 74th minute of his clubâ€™s 2-1 victory against Getafe in La Liga and a â€˜three-four monthâ€™ absence has been predicted by SPORT.Â This means he hasÂ joined Sergio Aguero, Ousmane Dembele and Ansu Fati as beingÂ unavailable to head coach Ronald Koeman.
â€œThe first-team playerÂ Martin BraithwaiteÂ has a femoropatellar injury in his left knee which has not responded to conservative treatment,â€ Barca said Monday.
â€œThe Danish striker will undergo surgery in the coming days. The club will publish a new injury update when the process has taken place.â€
Braithwaite began this campaign with two goals and an assist versus Real Sociedad.
