Barcelona's record signing Ousmane Dembele is expected to be out for three and a half months after having hamstring surgery.

The 20-year-old France forward was making his first La Liga start when he pulled up in the 29th minute in Saturday's 2-1 victory over Getafe.

Barca said Dembele was "successfully operated on to repair a ruptured biceps femoris in his left leg".

Dembele joined from Borussia Dortmund in a deal which could be worth £135.5m.
