FC Barcelona fans are excited to see how the team will play under the new manager, Hansi Flick. The German coach has found success at Bayern Munich, leading them to win a treble in the 2019/2020 season. Flick is prepared to offer a different style to the team, and the preseason is getting closer. Flick and FC Barcelona fans received bad news because of Pedri's injury at the EUROS. The Spanish midfielder looks to miss the preseason after he suffered a knee injury in the quarterfinals against Germany. That isn't the only key player that Barcelona will miss in the preseason. In the Copa America quarterfinals between Uruguay and Brazil. Toni Juanmartí and Javi Miguel report that Ronald Araujo could be out for six to eight weeks. The defender could be out for two months to make sure he is fully healed, which means he would not only miss the preseason but the start of the season as well. The Uruguayan defender was crying after suffering this injury in Copa America against Brazil.

The reports in Spain suggest that it is an injury to the biceps femoris of his left leg. Araujo had to leave the pitch in the 33rd minute, and he did it on his own after trying to block a cross. The Barcelona defender was down on the ground for a few minutes and couldn't continue the match. His Copa America with Uruguay is over as the team advanced to the semifinals and will play against Colombia.

There was hope that he would reach the preseason late with the rest of the team. FC Barcelona will start their preseason against Manchester City on July 30th. On August 2nd, FC Barcelona will play against Real Madrid in another friendly match. On August 5th, Barcelona will be playing against AC Milan.

The other star player to miss the preseason

The news for FC Barcelona continues to not be positive as Frenkie De Jong may also miss the preseason after still suffering from the injury he suffered against Real Madrid in April. Frenkie De Jong reportedly consistently experiences ankle discomfort whenever the workload intensifies.
