Barcelona Record Signing Ousmane Dembele Out For Up to Four Months

Barcelona Record Signing Ousmane Dembele Out For Up to Four Months

Barcelona suffered a major blow after their 2-1 victory over Getafe at the weekend when it was revealed that record signing Ousmane Dembele will be out for a minimum of three months with a thigh injury.

A statement on the club's website said the 20-year-old France worldwide had ruptured "his tendon in the femoral bicep in his left thigh".

The launch is the second to flyover Japan in less than a month, and the first since North Korea's sixth nuclear test and new United Nations sanctions on the country.

The Spanish club made the announcement on their official website on Sunday and it reads: "The tests have come back following first team player Ousmane Dembélé's injury in the 29th minute of the Getafe match. He is expected to be out for between three-and-a-half months and four months".

"Dembele will be operated on Tuesday by Dr. Sakari Orava".

Greg Olsen OUT indefinitely with a broken foot
Fantasy Impact Olsen originally left the game with a foot injury and was probable to return, but he was eventually ruled out. The Bills' defense contained Cam Newton and Company, to the tune of six sacks for (-50) yards, allowing just 3 field goals.

The French star is off to Finland to have the problem sorted.

Given he is unlikely to play again until 2018, Barca will have to find a way of keeping pace in La Liga and navigating the UEFA Champions League group stage without him.

Veteran Actor Frank Vincent Dead At 78
Hollywood colleagues and fans paid tribute to Vincent on social media with references to some of his memorable movie scenes. Of the three films Vincent made with Scorsese, it's Goodfellas that provided the veteran star with his juiciest role.

In Dembele's absence, Barca coach Ernesto Valverde is likely to turn to Gerard Deulofeu, who rejoined the club from Everton in the summer, while Paco Alcacer, Denis Suarez, Aleix Vidal and Denis Suarez are also options.
