Memphis Depay and Frenkie de Jong underwent medical tests on Monday, when Barcelona confirmed that both players suffer from hamstring injuries.
Thew two Dutchmen were not the only Barcelona players to have picked up knocks during this international break, as Jules Kounde and Ronald Araujo were forced to withdraw from the France and Uruguay squads, respectively, through injuries.
Barcelona confirmed through a statement published on their website that De Jong has an elongation of the semitendinosus muscle in his left thigh and Memphis has an injury to the biceps femoris muscle in his left thigh.
No estimated absence time
The Catalans made clear that neither of the two players are available for selection, stressing that their recoveries will dictate their return to action.
Neither De Jong nor Memphis are considered as starters this season. The latter has played in only three games for a total of 131 minutes. For his part, De Jong has participated in all of Barcelona’s eight matches but has only started half of them.
