Barça trained on Saturday morning at the Ciutat Esportiva Sant Joan Despí for the last time before travelling to El Madrigal for Sunday’s game with Villarreal. The big news was the presence of new signing Douglas Pereira, who was officially unveiled on Friday and now got to meet his new team-mates for the first time.

There was further good news when Neymar was able to complete the full session. Alex Song was absent in order to concentrate on matters regarding his future, while Andrés Iniesta also missed the session with knee trouble. The injured Thomas Vermaelen and Marc-André Ter Stegen did specific activities related to their recovery schedules.

Luis Enrique therefore had 20 first team players to work with, as well as two more from the B team, Munir El Haddadi and Sandro Ramírez.
