25 Sep Sources: De Jong may miss El Clásico with injury
Barça host Madrid on Oct. 28 at the Olympic Stadium, with sources saying it is unlikely De Jong will be back in time for the game.
“It’s a tough one because of the way we play and the level he has been at. He’s a key player for us, he has been really good since last season.
“We have options to come in for him, so hopefully we won’t suffer too much. We will see how he is after the [October] international break. That’s all we can say for now.”
Barça’s win over Celta moved them to the top of LaLiga at the weekend after Real Madrid lost to Atletico Madrid on Sunday.
