Barcelona look to take another step to a treble of trophies this term when they head to Old Trafford to face Manchester United in the Champions League on Wednesday evening, and they are set to have an attacking star back available, according to their official website.

With the La Liga title all but wrapped up, and being heavy favourites in the race for the Copa del Rey, the Catalans giants can head to England and give everything they have got in their bid to make it through to the semi-final of Europe’s premier competition.

Barcelona are no strangers to going the distance in this tournament, and with Liverpool possibly awaiting them in the semi-final, their path to the final in Madrid could well have an English flavour to it.

Having overcome Lyon in the round of 16, the Catalan side will be out to see off Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men in this first leg, and made the return game at the Nou Camp next week almost a formality.

To help them with that quest, Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde appears to be able to call upon the services of attacking star Ousmane Dembele for the trip to Manchester.

The France international has missed out due to injury in recent times, but having been assessed during the club’s final training session before the tie, it seems as though the winger has been passed fit to feature against United.

He will join the likes of Lionel Messi and former Liverpool duo Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho in the attacking pool of players at the disposal of the Barcelona coach in the match.

One man who is likely to feature who will be known well by Manchester United fans is central defender Gerard Pique. The Spanish giant began his career at Old Trafford, and is set to make a return for this first leg.
