Six more players returned to training on Monday morning to start the week's activities at the Ciutat Esportiva. Back from their summer break after having featured in the 2018 World Cup, Ivan Rakitic, Samuel Umtiti, Luis Suárez, Philippe Coutinho, Yerry Mina and Thomas Vermaelen joined Sergio Busquets, Leo Messi, Gerard Piqué and Jordi Alba (who had come back last week) and Saturday returnees Sergi Samper and Ousmane Dembélé in a session held in warm, sunny conditions.

Goalkeeper Marc-André Ter Stegen was also present, following his arrival on Sunday from the club's tour of the USA. Recovering from injury, Carles Aleñá did specific training.

This week's training sessions are building towards the start of the LaLiga season, as well as Sunday's Spanish Super Cup game against Sevilla in Tangier.
