With the first leg of the quarterfinals looming large in three weeks’ time, the Blaugrana faithful can rejoice as de Jong’s recovery from his ankle sprain appears to be on track.

Sources indicate that the Dutch dynamo is expected to be at full fitness for the monumental encounter at Parc des Princes.

De Jong’s absence due to injury had cast a shadow over Barcelona’s preparations, but his imminent return injects renewed optimism into Xavi Hernandez’s camp.

As the fourth captain of the squad, de Jong’s presence on the field is considered indispensable, especially against formidable opponents like PSG boasting talents like Mbappe, Dembele, Hakimi, and Asensio.
