What if Suarez made a timely comeback?
On the day Martin Braithwaite's announcement is expected, 'Sport' joins the rumours of previous days to venture that Luis Suarez's return to the pitch may come sooner than expected. A piece of news that would considerably help the team in the last months of competition.
Luis Suárez's knee injury forced him to go through the operating room, which meant he was all but guaranteed to miss the rest of the season. But this latest information opens the door to a return much earlier than expected.
The player's goal is to make the quickest possible recovery in order to be available for the last and most decisive part of the season, when most titles are played.
With the losses of Suárez and Dembélé, the club has had to go to the market. Unless there's a last minute change of heart, Braithwaite will be joining the club to strengthen the club's offensive power, but he is not half as differential as Luis Saurez.
Additionally, the Danish striker cannot play in the Champions League, as Barça can no longer register him. He will have to play in the remaining 14 matches in the league.
As Messi's ideal partner, Suarez added 14 goals and ten assists in the 23 matches he played this season. Barça will wait for him, but it all depends on how quickly he can make his recovery.
His participation in the Copa America, once again being played this year, could also be at risk, which means the South American has even more reasons to get back to full fitness.
