The injury sustained by Barcelona forward Bojan Krkic is less serious than initially expected, and he could resume to match action before the end of the season.

The 20-year-old picked up the problem in his side's 3-1 home win over Almeria on April 9 and Barca feared that Krkic would be sidelined for the remainder of the season.

However, Sport reports that the striker has now set his sights on a comeback in the league match at home against Deportivo on May 15 and could also feature in the fixture against Malaga one week later if his recovery process goes according to plan.

Krkic is expected to resume individual training action later this week.
