BARCELONA, Spain (AP) Ousmane Dembele has traveled to Finland to undergo surgery to repair a ruptured left thigh tendon.
Barcelona says the newly signed forward will undergo the procedure with a specialist on Tuesday.
Dembele got injured Sunday during Barcelona’s 2-1 win at Getafe in the Spanish league.
The club says the 20-year-old Frenchman is expected to be sidelined for three to four months.
Barcelona signed Dembele from Borussia Dortmund in a deal that could reach nearly 150 million euros ($180 million), the biggest ever in the history of the Catalan club.
Dembele replaced Neymar after the Brazil forward moved to Paris Saint-Germain in a world-record transfer worth more than 220 million euros ($262 million).
Dembele was making only his third appearance with Barcelona, which leads the Spanish league after four matches.
