Ousmane Dembele arrived back in Barcelona on Wednesday night after a successful operation in Finland on Tuesday. Specialist Sakari Orava gave him permission to return to the Catalan city after spending the night in Helsinki.

The french young gun got a lot of support from fellow team-mates after suffering from a ruptured tendon.Barcelona said he would need slightly less than initial three and a half months to return.

But the player himself has made a surprising claim. Shortly after arriving in Barcelona, Dembele uploaded a photograph to Instagram of his team-mates wearing T-shirts offering their support him before Tuesday’s win over Eibar.

The photo doesn’t have any direct comments, but it does have various hashtag. Among them are #viscabarça, #prontoderegreso and, most interestingly, #iwillbebackintwomonths.

Does that mean he has a chance to return before mid season,six weeks before the given time?Only time will tell.
