Former Barcelona coach, and current assessor for the club's board, Carles Rexach, said on Tuesday that Tito Vilanova will return to the Camp Nou on March 25.

"It looks like he will be here on the 25th," Rexach told the programme 'Divendres' on Catalan regional station TV3.

Vilanova is currently in New York receiving treatment after suffering a relapse of the cancer in his parotid gland towards the end of last year.

The Barca coach, who first underwent surgery in November 2011, has been in New York since January 22.

Nevertheless, he has maintained contact with his assistant Jordi Roura, who said that "during matches we communicate with each other at half-time and if we need to adjust anything during the game."
