Fati was pulled out of Barcelona’s 5-2 win over Real Betis on November 7 at halftime after a meniscus injury.
The teenager had to have surgery, which made him ineligible for the selection of Ronald Koeman.
according to Diario AS, Fati has completed his rehabilitation program in Madrid, under the guidance of knee specialist Dr Jose Carlos Noronha.

He was also seen at Ciutat Esportiva del Barcelona’s training facilities undergoing his standard pre-season medical tests.
However, he is still a long way from returning to training with the squad – much to Koeman’s disappointment.
The news of Fati’s extended absence will be a major blow to Barca, as the youngster had scored or assisted 40 per cent of the club’s goals until his injury last season.
